Evenimentul Zilei - Romania | 13/03/2013

EU arms itself against errant member states

In a letter sent last week to EU Commission President José Manuel Barroso, the foreign ministers of Germany, Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands called for a constitutional early warning system. Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta is doubtless pleased that no countries were mentioned by name, the daily Evenimentul Zilei writes: "No doubt there are politicians, perhaps even Ponta himself, as well as the loudmouths in the [left-liberal] USL, who believe that the letter does not pertain to Romania. And to their minds, anyone who nevertheless insists that it does is attacking the rule of law! Do you remember when there were heated discussions over whether sanctions should be applied to Romania? ... The German MEP Markus Ferber said back then that he was considering contacting the European Commission to have Romania's voting rights in the European Council repealed. He didn't follow through. But you know the saying: extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures! The situation is now repeating itself, but this time the letter really was posted."
