Gusa: UNPR may form majority with PSD this year

When ex-presidential aide Sebastian Lazaroiu is taking a break from making predictions concerning Romania’s political future, the ex-leader of the National Initiative Party (PIN), Cozmin Gusa, is happy to take his place. Thus, the political strategist told ziare.com that he considered it likely that leftwing parties would form a coalition, while in the rightwing camp the National Liberal Party (PNL) may join forces with the Democrat-Liberal Party (PDL). Furthermore, he argued, several political leaders’ heads will “roll”.

“What I see as a likely surprise scenario, which could radically overturn the political game in 2012, is a strong left-wing alliance between the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) and the National Union for Romanian Progress (UNPR), which would virtually decide who holds the majority in the elections, as in a country affected by the crisis, as Romania is, with a poor and desperate population, the populist leftwing forces will always win votes at the expense of the rightwing,” Gusa stated, quoted  by realitatea.net.
