A reliable source told me that the D.A. Alliance is going to become a single powerful political party.

It is still a project, there are of course some protests especially inside PNL, but it seems that Basescu and Tariceanu already agreed on that.

PNL will merge in some way with PD or, better said, D.A. will become one entity – not just a political and electoral alliance.

Time will tell…my source told me that it is settled.

I believe that would be a smart move.

On the other hand...the party of ethnic Hungarians (UDMR) , may play a kingmaker's role after the inconclusive Romanian election on Sunday. They said they were open to cooperation with both main parties…

“We do not exclude cooperating with any of the two main groups to form a majority in parliament" Peter Eckstein-Kovacs, a leading politician from the Hungarian Democratic Union (UDMR) party, told Reuters."Our main goal is to help the new government wrap up EU entry talks as soon as possible," “Tomorrow we are going to decide what to tell our voters regarding whom they should back for president," he said.

And I think that a minority PSD+PUR + UDMR or PSD+PUR + PRM - government with Basescu president would be an interesting experiment.

Some voices say that after the EU integration in 2007 the social shock would be so powerful that any party would have formed the government then it will lose the 2008 elections. Maybe it’s an acceptable scenario for the DA. Alliance To have the Presidency and to let PSD to form the Government and to support the integration social costs.

Whoever will gain the Presidency, whoever will form the Government, one thing is sure and I personaly am ready to fight in my way for this idea:

The Romanians have to decide who are those who deserve to rule us. And not the "voting tourists" or the masters of the voting boxes and of the opinion polls
