Israeli Tal Zylberstein and US Jewish Arthur Finkelstein, two of the best known experts in electoral strategies, have been working hard for the Romanian PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu and his National Liberal Party.
This is not the first time Zylberstein is working in Romania. Together with his colleagues he worked for several electoral campaigns, the last time for the Social-Democrat Party.
As for Arthur Finkelstein, he is known as 'a political killer', as an adept of the aggressive electoral strategy. This tandem is now assigned to use media means and not only to influence the parliamentary majority to sack the President of Romania Traian Basescu. The two aces in political advertising are to get $ 1 million. At least this is what the main Israeli daily, the Yediot Aharonot, claimed yesterday. According to the newspaper, although the wages set for the two are very large, the money hasn't been spent in vain. The strategy authored by Zylberstein and Finkelstein has been successful, since the National Liberal Party is alive and kicking again. Romanian Liberals are on the good way to the future elections and they will matter a lot in the presidency elections, the Israeli daily argues. There is also highlighted that not all Romanians are pleased with the two Israelis' success.
There are sources close to the media advising world who say that Zybelstein is also working for Dan Voiculescu and his Conservatives starting with today. (T.S.)
