World - Romania`s Ponta heads for presidency with justice in spotlight

By Matthias Williams and Radu-Sorin Marinas OPTASI-MAGURA Romania (Reuters) - Romanians are likely to move Prime Minister Victor Ponta into the presidency in elections that start on Sunday, offering one of Europe`s poorest countries political stability but raising concerns about judicial independence.

World - Ponta poised to win first round of Romania vote

Prime Minister Victor Ponta looks set to win the first round of presidential elections in Romania Sunday amid fears that, if elected, he could reverse advances in the justice system. The 42-year-old centre-left politician has enjoyed a comfortable lead over 13 other candidates and looks set to face 55-year-old liberal Klaus Iohannis, from the German-speaking minority, in a second round on November 16 in the former communist country. The elections are seen as a crucial test for Romania, as well as central Europe, at a time when democracy has suffered setbacks in some neighbouring countries, such as Hungary, and as the Ukraine crisis has shaken relations between the European Union and Russia. Popular centre-right President Traian Basescu, a long-term rival who has accused Ponta of being a former spy, is unable to run for a third term.
