Vot­ers elect­ing new gov­ern­ment

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Ro­ma­ni­ans be­gan vot­ing on Sunday in a par­lia­men­tary elec­tion a year af­ter a mas­sive anti-cor­rup­tion drive forced the last So­cial­ist prime min­is­ter from power. The coun­try of about 19 mil­lion is one of the poor­est in the Euro­pean Union and per­ceived as one of the most cor­rupt. Ro­ma­nia’s big­gest party, the So­cial Demo­cratic Party, is ex­pected to come first and will likely try to form a ma­jor­ity with smaller par­ties. In all, 504 seats are up for re-elec­tion in Ro­ma­nia’s bi­cam­eral Par­lia­ment.
