Abstract

Last week’s parliamentary elections in Romania produced the clearest electoral majority in the country since the first post-communist elections in 1990. Gabriel Badescu writes that the magnitude of the Social-Liberal Union’s victory raises a potential issue for Romanian democracy, with the coalition now holding enough seats in parliament to pass a constitutional amendment. The Social-Liberal Union’s co-habitation with President Traian Băsescu also poses an obstacle to delivering the effective governance needed to revive Romania’s struggling economy.
