BUCHAREST/PRAGUE, April 27 (Reuters) – Romania’s
left-leaning opposition will try to form a new government after
torpedoing the centre-right cabinet in a confidence vote on
Friday, the latest collapse of an austerity-minded ruling
coalition in Europe.
Like other governments in the European Union, ousted Prime
Minister Mihai Razvan Ungureanu’s two-month-old cabinet has
faced a wave of public anger against plans for spending cuts and
tax hikes. Violent protests toppled his predecessor, Emil Boc.
