Romanian President Traian Basescu threw the political stage upside down on Tuesday as he called for new negotiations to take place on Friday and proposed a new government formed of the parties that shared power until this spring, when the Democrats (PD), his main supporters, were removed from the coalition led by Liberal PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu.

According to a letter Basescu sent to political party leaders, the new government should be formed of Tariceanu’s Liberals (PNL), the PD and the Liberal Democrats (PLD), a party formed mainly of politicians who’ve been ousted from PNL over the past year.

He said consultations should take place on Friday considering that the majority of political parties “refuse the democratic solution granted by early elections”.

Basescu’s intervention comes as the PD submitted a motion against the Tariceanu Government. The document was scheduled to undergo parliamentary voting next Monday after plenary talks on Thursday.

Political talks have been taking place between PNL and the main opposition party, the Social Democrats (PSD) to grant a stable, majority-backed government after the PD was removed from the governing coalition. The PSD said on Tuesday that it did not support the PD motion.

PD representatives said today they were surprised by Basescu’s intervention as they claim they hadn’t been informed about his plans.

And PD deputy president Puiu Hasotti told the NewsIn news agency that Basescu’s proposal was a “cheap trap and a diversion” aimed at bringing early elections closer.
