Romania PM sees political paralysis if Basescu survives

BUCHAREST, July 16 (Reuters) - Romania’s Prime Minister Victor Ponta said he expected political paralysis in policymaking if suspended President Traian Basescu survives a referendum on his impeachment set for July 29.

“We cannot cooperate,” Ponta told private television station Realitatea TV. “If he keeps his post we will find ourselves in a situation where a political paralysis will prevail in Romania.”

Ponta said early presidential elections were the best option for Romania.
