BUCHAREST (Reuters) - Romania's ruling leftist Social Democrats (PSD) will withdraw political support for the six-month-old cabinet of Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu on Wednesday, two senior coalition politicians said.

The junior member of Romania's ruling coalition, ALDE, said earlier in the day that it had pulled ministers out of the six-month-old, PSD-led government and withdrawn support for Grindeanu.

Grindeanu, a Social Democrat, has been under pressure to reshuffle his team, with some senior politicians from both the PSD and ALDE accusing his cabinet of poor performance and failing to uphold the governing programme.
