“Romanian Government doesn’t want, following EC’s report, a Press Law or modification of the actual legislation related to this sector and the Parliament shouldn’t come up with new legislative norms in this field either”, Romanian prime minister Victor Ponta said in a statement made in Bruxelles, as Mediafax writes.
Ponta also said that he doesn’t intend, as Prime Minister or as leader of political majority, to promote a Press Law. He said this is already discussed for years, there is no European standard in this direction and Romania shouldn’t be the one to start with something like that. He added that, if there will be European standards in this direction, they will be applied.
Related to CNA’s law, Ponta said it is inspired by European models and any modification should comply European legislation.
