Democracy can create a new political class, and the society can elect it, according to democratic rules. Every Romanian politician, the president in particular, following his/her mandate, has the duty to improve the political class. In this regard, I would rather speak of a better political class instead of a new one.
It would be nice if this was be the goal of all politicians - to make the political class better - but I am afraid that this is quite optimistic (or ignorant) taking a look at the political classes in many European countries.(own translation)
