Rulers Emerge Victorious in Crucial Romanian Vote
Romania's center-left government won a clear victory in Sunday's parliamentary elections, exit polls show.
Prime Minister Victor Ponta's governing alliance had about 57 % of seats in the 452-seat Parliament, according to a poll published after elections on national television TVR.
The opposition Right Romania Alliance, aligned with President Traian Basescu, got 18.12%.
Other pollsters reported similar results.
"We won a clear majority," Ponta declared after the vote, urging his opponents to "accept the rules of democracy."
The Wall Street Journal has reminded that Ponta is engaged in a bitter political battle with Basescu, which suggests that despite the election results, Basescu may not nominate Ponta to lead the next government.
