than three months after it took office, Romania's government has
fallen. The centre-right administration lost a no-confidence vote filed
by the left-wing opposition. When the motion was originally filed few
thought the government was in danger. But in recent weeks it has been
weakened by a series of defections."Today there was justice,"
celebrated Victor Ponta, leader of the centre-left Social-Liberal Union
(USL), after securing 235 votes in favour of his motion, four more than
he needed. "We don't want any more dubious firms, no more selling under
the market price and huge bribes," he said in a five-hour long debate
that preceded the vote.Traian Basescu, the president and main
political player in Romania, proposed Mr Ponta as prime minister back in
February when the previous government, led by Emil Boc, resigned after
three weeks of street protests denouncing party cronyism, incompetence
and harsh austerity measures. Mr Ponta refused, but now he seems more
willing to step in thanks to the fair-weather politicians who have
flocked to his party from the centre-right.The International
Monetary Fund (IMF), which began an official visit to Romania earlier
this week to review the country's performance linked to a 5 billion euro
credit line it was granted last year, announced it would suspend its
mission until a new government is in place. That may not take long. But
with Romanian governments showing the longevity of mayflies, and the
European Union (EU) weary of a country that seems unable or unwilling to
make serious progress on the corruption problems that continue to
plague it five years after it was accepted into the club, it will take a
good deal longer for Romania to acquire the clout that should come
naturally to an EU country with 22m people.According to paragraph 3, Mr Ponta
a) took office as prime minister in February.
b) unfortunately resigned as prime minister.
c) may soon join a centre-right party.
d) might still run for a political post.
e) led decisive street protests for weeks.
