BUCHAREST (Reuters) - President Klaus Iohannis said on Tuesday the Social Democrat government had caused a crisis in Romania with a graft decree that prompted hundreds of thousands of people to protest, but he did not want to topple the cabinet or hold a snap election.
"The resignation of a single minister is too little and early elections would be at this stage too much: this is the space for maneuver available," Iohannis told parliament.
"Romania needs a strong government, not one that shyly executes party orders. Romania needs a government that governs transparently, predictibly, not at night in secret."
