He was defeated in the November 1996 elections by Democratic Convention of Romania leader Emil Constantinescu but was returned to office with a 67% margin in the December 2000 presidential runoff election out of an original field of 13 candidates.
Relations with the large ethnic-Hungarian population have improved despite the rather dramatic gains made by the ultra-nationalist Party of Great Romania (PRM) in recent elections; the PRM is the second largest party in the legislature and its presidential candidate, Corneliu Tudor, forced a runoff election against Iliescu in 2000.
The National Union, an alliance between the Social Democratic Party and the Humanist Party of Romania, gained the most seats in legislative elections held in November 2004; while the center-right opposition candidate narrowly defeated PSD president and Prime Minister Adrian Nastase for the presidency.

On Friday, Romania's outgoing President Ion Iliescu revoked the pardon of Miron Cozma, the controversial miners' leader who led deadly rampages by miners against anti-communist protesters in the 1990s.
The two political parties whose support Iliescu and Nastase hope to retain - the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians (UDMR) and the Humanist Party of Romania (PUR) - said Friday the pardon had made them reconsider their support for the Social Democrats.
Cozma, 49, was sentenced five years ago to 18 years in prison for instigating a mass demonstration by miners in 1991 that left three dead and brought down the reformist government of Prime Minister Petre Roman which was forced to resign.

As for the PUR, it is a fly-by-night party propelled by its wealthy leader and his TV station; it has no ideology, principles, or credibility.
Romania’s geography gives it both some volatile neighbors—Serbia, Moldova, and Ukraine come to mind—and some valuable assets to offer as a U.S. ally, such as access to the Black Sea and proximity to the Middle East.
