Exit polls say the PSD, in effect the descendent of the Romanian Communist party, won 45% of the parliamentary vote yesterday.
I remember what a diplomat told me when the PSDR won in 2000. 'It's not the ministers or the secretaries of state. It's the men in the brown crinoline suits. They're back.'
The people who wore brown crinoline suits are old now but the old guard is back and the government of technocrats are out. However the astonishing arrests of important figures for corruption by the Anti-Corruption Authority (DNA) will, I presume, continue.
