RFE/RL's Moldovan Service reports
that Romanian President Traian Basescu has tried to drive a nail into President Voronin's political coffin. Or at least limit his options.
"Voronin might remember that I helped him form a majority after elections in the past," Basescu said, "but this time Voronin will not have my support to build a majority in parliament and elect [Moldova's] president."
Basescu had already stoked the fires in a pretty frank interview
with RFE/RL ahead of this week's elections. But is he overstating his influence across the border just a tad?
