Premier Backs Down

BUCHAREST, Romania -- Sacked Prime Minister Radu Vasile took the edge off Romania's political crisis Wednesday by softening his insistence on getting back his job and deciding to wait for parliament to clarify his dismissal.

Vasile was dismissed Tuesday by President Emil Constantinescu after a revolt by the Christian Democrats, the main party in the ruling coalition.
