Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Alliance for Justice and Truth Leads in Romania

Support for the governing Alliance for Justice and Truth (DA) increased this month in Romania, according to a poll by CURS. 45 per cent of respondents would vote for the coalition of the National Liberal Party (PNL) and the Democratic Party (PD) in the next legislative election, up two points since July.

The Social Democratic Party (PSD) is second with 22 per cent, followed by the Party of Great Romania (PRM) with 13 per cent, the New Generation Party (PNG) with six per cent, and the Hungarian Democratic Alliance of Romania (UDMR) with five per cent. Support is lower for the Conservative Party (PC), the National Initiative Party (PIN), and the Democratic National Peasant Party (PNTCD).

PRM is the far-right party (very rabid, extreme even for the European far-right 'norm'). PNL is conservative-liberal. PSD is post-reformed-communist, of the uglier kind (Iliescu's party). PNG is the one-man party of a businessman-turned-populist.
