President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday stated that there are neither occult, nor underground forces in Romania, and added that the Senate Speaker Calin Popescu-Tariceanu sometimes creates the impression that he's "a bit obsessed".
He asserted that Tariceanu turned more and more weird.
"For a while, I have looked into the statements of the gentleman you have mentioned, who used to be a prime minister at some point. He sometimes had interesting to follow approaches, but for some time now I follow no more the assertions of this gentleman because he became more and more weird. Sometimes an impression that he is a bit obsessed is created. Or, the persons a bit obsessed do no good to politics and above all, these very strange approaches have surfaced intensely ever since the prosecutors have sent this gentleman to court," the head of state said.
On Monday, the Senate head, Calin Popescu-Tariceanu affirmed that the president of Romania could have had a stance and call to observance of the Constitutional Court's decisions, regarding the persons who do not want to show up when summoned to the parliamentary committees' inquiries.
"After taking over his mandate (Klaus Iohannis, ed. n.), he is proving us that he is the beneficiary of this system, of the parallel state and through his attitude and public statements he only confirms this assertion of mine. It is regrettable, because there could not be two parallel powers in the state: the legitimate power and an illegitimate power," Tariceanu had said.
