Bucharest, Romania. The Recent political scandal in which the image of Freemasonry was affected led to a natural reaction of the Grand Master of the National Grand Lodge of Romania. "The National Grand Lodge of Romania did not, does not and will never do politics, never shall engage in politics or support any political party or individual. Among our members we have members of all political parties, but each does in his public life what he wants," stated Radu Bălănescu for private TV channel Digi24.
Freemasonry is not a secret organization, has no political or religious doctrine, it is a club, association, on which charity and self-knowledge plays a primary role. Freemasonry is an institution of the civilized world, often making an effort for the prosperity of society.
