BUCHAREST, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Romania's main opposition centrist alliance has chosen businessman Calin Tariceanu as its choice for prime minister if it wins a general election on Nov. 28, a senior official in the alliance said on Wednesday.
Analysts and investors were keenly waiting to find out who the Truth and Justice Alliance would choose to face popular Foreign Minister Mircea Geoana, who is the choice of the ruling leftist Social Democrats.
Romania, which aims to join the European Union in 2007, holds general and presidential elections one month before it hopes to wrap up European Union membership talks.
"The official announcement ... will be made later in the day. Calin Tariceanu is the one to be nominated," the source in the opposition Liberal party told Reuters.
The Liberal Party is one of two parties in the alliance. The other is the Democrat Party. The alliance is running behind the Social Democrats in opinion polls.
Tariceanu, 52, for many years ran the local unit of French car maker Citroen. He was recently appointed to lead the Liberals after former presidential candidate Theodor Stolojan withdrew for health reasons.
Tariceanu, who is also a member of parliament, handed over his responsibilities at Citroen last year when a law to halt conflicts of interest came into force.
