Parliamentary elections partial results. PSD to form the next Government.

In brief

  • Partial results give PSD a comfortable score in general elections in order to nominate the Prime Minister and form the Government alongside with ALDE

  • PNL is the loser of the 2016 parliamentary elections. Lack of leadership leave the Liberals in opposition for the next four years

  • USR has got below 9% at the national level and over 25% in Bucharest and Diaspora. It will try to grow its credibility and grow its popularity in the country

  • PMP will become the loudest opposition voice in the next Parliament, with Traian Basescu trying to regain the Romanians’ trust
