Zachęcony przykładem prof. Przystawy, również wysłałem komentarz do wpisu na blogu ambasadora Harrisa nt. walki z korupcją w Rumunii. Martin Harris wyraźnie popiera stanowisko Komisji Europejskiej i staje po stronie Prezydenta Basescu i Sądu Najwyższego oraz przeciw rządowi Ponty. Nie wspomnia w kontekście walki z korupcją reformy prawa wyborczego w Rumunii, co wydało mi się dziwne:
Oto mój komentarz (oczekuje na moderację):
I could not agree more with your support for the Romanian civil society in their fight against corruption. It has to be recognised in this context that in May 2012 they made a significant positive step forward by adopting our FPTP voting system which makes each elected representative indvidually accountable. It is the ability of citizens to remove the corrupt politician with ease, more even than the ability to choose a new government, that is the most important virtue of our way of voting here in the UK. The method of electing MPs is infinitely more important than any “National Anti-Corruption Strategy”. Only a true representative, who acts under the watchful eyes of his or her consituents, can hold government institutions to their principles, effectively monitor their conduct and withdraw his or her support should any indications arise that these principles are corrupted.
Unfortunately, on 27 June 2012 the Romanian High Court ruled this new voting system unconstitutional. Should we not express our surprise?
