A Romanian-language report on the Wikileaks cable was published by on Sunday. It shows that Pop has admitted to a special burden of the PSD regarding corruption and identifies former PM and influential PSD official Adrian Nastase in this respect.

In a talk on December 12 with Embassy officials of the US Embassy to Bucharest, PSD deputy Georgian Pop talked about the plans PDL and PSD to form a new coalition government following the elections.
