PM designate Ponta: Today “a fundamental change in Romania’s fate. I am the only PM that celebrated his adulthood after the 1989 revolution”
BUCHAREST (Reuters) – When Romania’s government cut salaries by a quarter in 1931, it collapsed and the country ran through 22 different cabinets in a decade and slid into dictatorship and war.
Eight decades later, another government introduced a similar austerity measure under an International Monetary Fund-led bailout. It fell and parliament threw out its successor after just two months.
