In his first interview since the elections, granted to EurActiv Romania, Stolojan expresses his trust in Basescu and underlines the new president's determination to rid the public institutions of all forms of political interference.
He said that he was "sure" that a new government will emerge in Romania out of the predictably tough coalition talks ahead, if only because "Romania needs a government".
Since the results of the November parliamentary elections in Romania were inconclusive, leaving no single party holding a majority, the political parties are now vying to set up a coalition.
Basescu is determined not to settle for a government led by a Social Democrat prime minister, since he believes that a 'cohabitation' would "lead to political instability".
Under Romanian law, if parliament proves unable to approve a government within 60 days, the president can dissolve the legislature and new elections would have to be called.
As to the chances for his staging a political comeback, Stolojan would only say that "I will see in a few days".
