Romanian President Traian Basescu looks likely to remain in office following a referendum. Prime Minister Victor Ponta, whose government took office in May, suspended Basescu for overstepping his powers.

However low turnout in a vote to impeach the suspended Basescu looks likely to derail the efforts by his opponents to oust him from office. Unless at least 50 percent of voters cast a ballot, the referendum will be invalid, setting the stage for more clashes between Basescu and his opponents in the government. According to exit polls the turnout is below the required minimum.
