Romania's new president urges all out war on corruption

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis waves to members of the Parliament assembly after his swearing-in ceremony in Bucharest on December 21, 2014New Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, whose anti-graft platform propelled him to the top job, on Sunday urged politicians to stamp out entrenched corruption in one of Europe’s poorest countries. “There is no other path for Romania” other than becoming a nation “rid of all corruption,” Iohannis told parliament after officially assuming his duties. This must “be understood clearly at every level of the political class,” said the 55-year-old, Romania’s first president from the German minority. The centre-right politician made waves in mid-November by winning the presidential election against the frontrunner, Social Democrat Prime Minister Victor Ponta.
