Emil Boc, Romania's prime minister, has resigned after weeks of nationwide protests against a slew of austerity measures and months before a parliamentary election.

Boc enforced the cuts, including slashing public salaries by a quarter and raising sales tax, to complete a $26.24bn International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout deal and boost the economy after a deep and bitter recession.
