The governing coalition in Bucharest agreed on the necessity of a restructuring of the government in talks Monday evening, but failed to set the rules and deadlines of the process. Leaders of the coalition parties could not even establish what seats and members of the government will have to go.

They only agreed that the government led by Liberal Calin Popescu Tariceanu will have 30% less governmental agencies and state secretaries and rejected a proposal to abandon the seats of deputy prime minister and minister-delegate, supported by the Democratic Party - PD.

PD president Emil Boc said after the talks that the parties could not overcome the differences of opinion on the ways to restructure the government. But he said further decisions will be made in the coming weeks.
