Well said, Johan/News: Ponta seems to have won the first round

I doubt there is much of a chance of the monarchy ever being restored in Romania, but the respect and affection which seems to remain for many in King Michael, and the history of his heroism against both the fascists and the Communists in his brief reign, must surely be the strongest asset the monarchists (such as they are) have.
It now seems that Mr. Ponta has won the first round of presidential voting. Marlene has reported that he supports a referendum on restoring the monarchy. While this may fit with his nationalist and religious focus, it does call into question what type of monarchy he might envision. Probably not a liberal, Western European-style one based on his broader policy program.
