Romanian parliament casts vote on non-confidence motion against government.

By bne IntelliNews April 27, 2012
The Romanian MPs will cast today, April 27, their vote on the opposition's non-confidence motion against the government that could in principle oust the cabinet of PM Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu after less than three months in office. The balance between the ruling coalition and the opposition is rather fragile and the nine independent MPs can make a difference and help overthrow the cabinet. According to a detailed screening of Gandul daily, the opposition holds 223 MPs, out of which one is under arrest, therefore cannot vote. The ruling coalition holds 227 MPs including the MPs of the three main parties (PDL, UDMR, UNPR) plus the 17 representatives of the ethnic minorities - whose support is considered to be in general weaker and conditional. There are ten independent MPs, out of which one is under arrest. If the nine independent MPs vote against the cabinet and all the MPs of the ruling and opposition parties vote according to their parties' directions, the cabinet would be ousted.
