Despite an ugly battle of egos...between President Traian Basescu...and PM Viktor Ponta...Basescu has reappointed Ponta as PM.
Last Sunday...Ponta's supporters beat out bitter enemy Basescu's...with 60% of the parliamentary vote.
PM Ponta began the ugliness when he tried to impeach the president in July.
President Basecu had threatened not to re-appoint Ponta as PM.
They will have to share power until 2014.
Bucharest needs a new IMF loan in early 2013...but continued political unrest between the two men was unnerving the IMF...and threatened to delay...or kill even the much needed loan.
