Abstract

Since the fall of communism, Romania has used a system of proportional representation in its parliamentary elections. But now, according to Cristina Bucur, a month after the collapse of the coalition government led by the Democratic Liberal Party due to a motion of no confidence, the new ruling coalition of the National Liberals and the Social Democrats are set to rewrite the electoral law to introduce a first-past-the-post style system which will virtually guarantee these parties a clear majority in the upcoming elections.
