Romania PM's alliance wins parliament majority-official results

BUCHAREST, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Romania’s governing leftist alliance won 58-60 percent of votes in a parliamentary election, officials said on Monday, giving it a clear majority and a mandate to ease austerity while seeking a new IMF deal.

The results from four-fifths of polling stations showed Prime Minister Victor Ponta’s Social Liberal Union (USL) won a clear victory over the Right Romania Alliance (ARD) on 17 percent, Romania’s election bureau said.
