As expected, all headlines on Thursday refer to the anti-government motion rejected yesterday by the Parliament. Although it seemed that the parties supporting the motion will gather the necessary majority, some of the votes didn't come out as expected. Still, with 220 votes against the government, PM Tariceanu saw the future: lack of any support in the Parliament.

"Betrayed with Chewing gum" is the title in Evenimentul Zilei. Social Democrat (PSD) deputy Valeriu Zgonea unveiled the fact that the urn containing the votes turned out to contain chewing gum balls and even black balls covered in white paper, to confuse those who surveyed the vote.

PSD president Mircea Geoana blamed "the coward colleagues" immediately after the results were announced and some expect retaliation against the over 20 PSD MPs who voted against the motion.

"Geoan`, problems, dude?", is the main title in Jurnalul National: "Goodbye, dreams of glory. Tariceanu made it alive. PSD now counts its balls and Geoana fears for his own balls", the article comments without any subtlety.

"Iliescu betrayed Geoana to save Tariceanu", Cotidianul reads, explaining that the group around the former Romania president, Ion Iliescu, was the one that made the difference during the vote yesterday.

The same idea returns in Gandul: "Tariceanu, saved by the PSD betrayers": "Mircea Geoana threatens to attack the government once again, when the 2008 Budget Law is discussed".
