A storm in a teacup
The Conservative Party quitted the government. Honestly speaking, I don't think there is someone missing them. I am neither expecting a huge political crisis to emerge the following days. Right now early elections aren't more imminent than they were one week ago. In one fundamental way, parliamentary calculations are the same: the majority wishes to continue the mandate instead of jeopardizing it by elections earlier than the case. It is only the PD (Democrat Party)...
An opportunity to seize
Because of the present interests of the main political players Romanian politics is about to explode. The Conservatives dumped the government for now, leaving Tariceanu's Cabinet without majority support in the Parliament. The Democrats want to get rid of the PM, the Liberals want early elections to get rid of Stolojan, but the idea that Tariceanu should continue as PM for 2 more years is a condition.
The Ministry of Economy and Commerce is one of the real issues...
Democrats want to govern together with Stolojan's group
The Democrats suggested to the Liberals yesterday not to search for solutions outside the Alliance in power. It was actually a hint at the rumor that the Liberals were secretly negotiating with the PSD (Social-Democrat Party). The Liberals didn't like it and replied to the Democrats that they shouldn't be talking about it, since they themselves had negotiated with the PSD on the leadership over the SRI (Romanian Intelligence Service)....
7 Conservatives resign at the same time
Only 7 members of the PC (Conservative Party) decided yesterday to resign from the government in a ceremony taking place in Victoria Palace, more exactly in the office of ex vice PM Bogdan Pascu. After the party had announced withdrawal from the government, Bogdan Pascu invited the 18 Conservatives in the government to write their resignations together at the same time and thus prove solidarity. But only 7 members of the PC decided to resign: ministers...

The PSD (Social-Democrat Party) leader Mircea Geoana announced yesterday that his party wouldn't be supporting a minority government of officials from the Alliance in power and therefore the Social-Democrats wouldn't vote for the budget set for 2007. He also mentioned a PSD parliamentary motion against the government was likely to follow "at the right time."
Ion Iliescu mentioned just before Mircea Geoana's announcement that there could be found...
Transdniestria on the agenda
Against a background dominated by a "special interest" in the Dnister dispute, Romania has reiterated its support for the initiatives meant to settle it so that the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Moldovan Republic will be respected. While in Brussels yesterday the Romanian foreign minister Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu mentioned the need to firmly discourage the continuation of separatist attempts, as well as the referendum recently held...
