USL (Social-Liberal Union), the ruling coalition in Romania, starts the procedures for the impeachment of President Traian Basescu. A spokesperson said the request will be read in Parliament today, July 4. Yesterday, July 3, the USL changed the heads of Senate and Chamber of Deputies.
According to Romanian media, the USL members of Parliament were asked not to leave Bucharest, in order to be able to attend the procedures in Parliament.
USL, a coalition of social-democrats and liberals, have taken over power few months ago, but they have to deal with their political enemy, Traian Basescu, the main supporter of the former Government (PDL-Democrat Liberals).
