Liberals, Social-Democrats reportedly negotiating alliance

The opposition Liberals and Social-Democrats are reportedly in an advanced state of negotiations to divide spheres of electoral influence and appoint common candidates in 2012 local elections, according to sources in both parties quoted by daily ‘Evenimentul Zilei.’ The negotiations are allegedly held behind party leaders Victor Ponta and Crin Antonescu’s back as the two have been at odds over the best way of collaborating. The sources told the newspaper that PSD Secretary General and his PNL counterpart Radu Stroe have already had several meetings to discuss ways for the two parties to run together in future elections. Although he initially rejected the possibility of an official PSD-PNL alliance, Liberal leader Antonescu said recently that the two parties should overcome their differences and become a major political force to remove the current rule. He said the two parties should become one mass in order to achieve their goal.
