Emil Boc, head of the Democratic Liberal Party (PD-L), is Romania's newest Prime Minister designate, named by President Traian Basescu a "man dedicated to public service, a man of dialogue, who carried out his duty and took responsibility for implementing several very difficult solutions, such as the financing agreement with the World Bank, the IMF [International Monetary Fund], and the European Union."

The camps are now very clear, with the Opposition red and yellow [Ed. n. Social Democratic and Liberal] and the ruling power orange and green [Democratic Liberal and Democratic Hungarian], with chances of the colours merging to become something else.

The ruling power is dominated by PD-L, the party to decide the new Executive and parliamentary majority. This political reality is the reason why Traian Basescu has designated three Prime Ministers close to the Democratic Liberals or from the party itself.

At this moment, PD-L is calling the political shots. Basescu's reelection is due to an exemplary mobilization of the Democatic Liberals, and it is expected that main party figures will be part of the next Executive, includingVasile Blaga, Radu Berceanu, and Adriean Videanu.

Parliamentary reform, and a rethinking of the Constitution will be subjects which PD-L will deal with based on the President's vision.

The Hungarian leadership acted true to form, becoming part of the government, helping to form the parliamentary majority needed to pass the Executive. The governing experience of the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) has proven it is a disciplined partner, making it a political player with a decisive role on the political stage.
