All newspapers today mediate the intense contradictory declarations of various political leaders on the new future government and their possible strategic alliances that would generate the Parliamentary majority.

Cotidianul reads that Democrat Liberals are considering creating the so much needed Parliamentary majority by convincing some individual representatives to change sides. Despite the official declarations of the leaders, rumors have it that PDL seeks to form a government with Hungarian Democrats and seek the support of both all national minorities and of some other colleagues that would change sides.

Thus, the calculus is that PDL would need 236 votes to sustain the new government. Together, both the Democrat Liberals and Hungarian Democrats make up for 197 mandates. Plus, another 18 from the national minorities that usually vote with those in power: a total of 215 votes.PD-L leaders would have to individually convince some other colleagues to switch sides.

The newspaper reads that the party might also get the 5 votes from the Conservatives, as their alliance with the Social Democrats does not seem to stable. Sources from PD-L declared for the newspaper that the missing votes could be gathered from both the Liberal side and the Social Democratic one.

Another option for PDL would be to form a government together with the Social Democrats, and have two Prime Ministers, that would govern, each, for two years.

Evenimentul Zilei points out that the heated debate among politicians is run through the media rather than the usual political directions. The newspaper reads that Democrat Liberals were advised to end their televised interventions until consultations with the President are organized.

Still, the official electoral results were not yet released, so political leaders have nothing to negotiate yet, as Democrat Liberals nor Social Democrats, know for sure how they stand. Depending on the results, their position in negotiations will change. The Liberals and Hungarian Democrats have every potential of becoming a blackmailing party, determining the final result of the negotiations.

Nevertheless, Liberals might lose the train, as PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu refuses to give up his chair, even if this will throw his party in opposition. Meanwhile, political leaders do no miss any chance to attack each other, claiming that an alliance with the Social Democrats will be highly sanctioned by the electorate, Romania libera reads.
