Romania Political Turmoil Continues After Ruling Delayed

Romania’s Constitutional Court postponed a ruling on validating the results of a July 29 referendum to impeach suspended President Traian Basescu, prolonging the political turmoil that has weakened the leu.

The nine-member panel postponed a judgment until Sept. 12 to review electoral documents and voter lists after receiving conflicting data from the central electoral bureau and the statistics institute, according to a court statement released today in Bucharest. The government must send an updated list of voters to the court by Aug. 31.
