Romania Coalition Loses Support 3 Months Before Vote, Poll Shows

Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Romania’s ruling coalition continued to lose public support after a failed attempt to impeach President Traian Basescu, a survey showed.

The governing Social Democrats and Liberals, who form the Social Liberal Union, wound win 48 percent of the votes in a general election, according to a Sept. 20-23 survey by polling company CSOP published by Evenimentul Zilei newspaper today. That compares with 54 percent in an IRES survey published on Aug. 27 and 49 percent in a previous CSOP poll, according to the newspaper.

The opposition Liberal Democratic Party, which formed the Right Romania Alliance with two other parties, would garner 24 percent of the vote after the ruling coalition failed to impeach Basescu in a referendum because of low turnout. The People’s Party, founded by media entrepreneur Dan Diaconescu, would get 12 percent backing, according to the poll.

Romania will hold general elections on Dec. 9.

The survey of 1,021 people was commissioned by the Liberal Democrats and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points, according to Evenimentul Zilei.
