FILE - This is a Monday, Feb. 6, 2012. file photo of Romanian President Traian Basescu, as her announces as Prime Minister Mihai Razvan Ungureanu, unseen, currently the head of Romania's foreign intelligence service in Bucharest, Romania. Romania's President Traian Basescu says he's on "Mission Impossible" to save democracy in this former Communist country. His opponents hope he's on an impossible quest to save his job. As Romania hold a referendum Sunday on impeaching Basescu, the ugly political battle has raised questions about the rule of law in the fledgling EU member. It comes against the background of similar concerns about shaky democracy across Eastern Europe, in countries such as Hungary, Bulgaria and Serbia that are striving to join the European mainstream.(AP Photo/Vadim Ghirda, File) less
