The likelly winner of the elections is the center-left Social Liberal Union led by current Romanian PM Victor Ponta.

Opinion polls ahead of the elections show that the USL might even gather more than half of the vote.

The Union's main rival is the Right Romania Alliance (ARD) masterminded by Romanian President Traian Basescu, and including Dan Diaconescu's People's Party.
