In Romania the technocrat government of Dacian Ciolos easily won a confidence vote in parliament on Tuesday, reinforcing its mandate for a one-year term to stamp out corruption.

The technocrat cabinet won with the support of the biggest parties the Liberal Democrats and the former ruling Social Democrats.

The previous government of Victor Ponta fell earlier this month amidst public anger over a nightclub fire in the capital Bucharest that killed 56 people.

The incident provoked protests after it came to light that the club had been granted a license despite not being approved by firefighters.

Romanian anti-corruption prosecutors arrested the club’s three owners along with former mayor of the city in connection with the fire.
