The Romanian parliament has voted to suspend President Basescu from office after the ruling coalition accused him of violating the constitution and exceeding his authority.

A referendum has been set for July 29 to let the people decide whether he should continue.

Amid souring relations between the president and the prime minister, the centre-left coalition replaced key Basescu allies, including parliamentary leaders and the country’s ombudsman.

Some observers have said they are concerned about the state of democracy in Romania.
