New careless mistake by Romanian PM exposes her

Viorica Dăncilă, the Prime Minister of Romania is already known for her public gaffes. Now she made yet another blunder during talks with MEPs in the Socialist and Democrat Group, where instead of saying the word ‘protesters’, she spoke about… “protestants”, Romanian MEP Catalin Ivan reported.

The MEP wrote a post on his Facebook account that read: “I have just found out from Viorica Dancila in the plenary sitting of S&D Group that the gendarme woman assaulted during the Diaspora rally on August 10 “was brutally beaten by protestants”. I hope interpreters understood it’s about protesters. Let’s not start a religious conflict.”

The Romanian premier is on a two-day working visit to Brussels, where she has meetings with the political groups in the European Parliament. A debate on the rule of law in Romania is scheduled in EP plenary session next week, says romaniajournal.ro…. / IBNA
