October 1 (SeeNews) - Romanian President Traian Basescu on Thursday endorsed Regional Development and Housing Minister Vasile Blaga as interim Interior Minster and interim Deputy Prime Minister to replace Dan Nica, the President’s press office said.
Earlier this week the left-wing Social Democratic Party, PSD, threatened to leave the nine-month old coalition with centre-right Democratic-Liberal Party, PD-L, if Basescu endorses the dismissal of Nica, affiliated with the PSD. The two coalition partners share equal number of seats in the cabinet.
Prime Minister and PD-L leader Emil Boc on Monday dropped Dan Nica as Interior Minister saying that Nica's statement about a possible vote-rigging in the forthcoming presidential elections is unfounded and inappropriate for a cabinet member. On Tuesday he nominated Blaga, member of the PD-L, to replace Nica.

Romania will hold presidential elections on November 22.
