By bne IntelliNews April 19, 2012
The Romanian opposition alliance, USL, has filed a non-confidence motion in parliament against the centre-right cabinet of PM Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu, news agency Mediafax reported. The opposition, however, admits that it does not hold enough votes in the joint chambers to have the motion endorsed and the government ousted. The ruling coalition holds a fragile majority, but MPs are constantly shifting from the ruling parties to opposition, the head of PSD (leftist, opposition) caucus in the lower chamber, Mircea Dusa, explained. Via the motion the opposition parties protest against the government's i. attempt to privatise copper company Cupru Min ii. allocation of supplementary funds to local administration on political grounds and iii. decision to set up a Hungarian department at Targu Mures medicine university.
