BUCHAREST (Reuters) - Romanian Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu's government had the full support of the ruling Social Democrat Party (PSD), party leader Liviu Dragnea said on Monday, a day after the cabinet bowed to mass protests and scrapped a decree decriminalising some graft offences.

"The government has no reason to resign, it was legitimately elected," PSD leader Dragnea told reporters after a party meeting.
