They also chanted "Thieves, thieves", waving Romanian, U.S., North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and European Union flags. Some individuals lobbed rocks, bottles and smoke bombs at riot police.
Romanian protesters gathered in major cities across the country to call for early elections.
This time, the protest was peaceful, with no violent clashes.
More than 400 people required medical assistance, the emergency intervention agency ISU said, including two riot police who became separated from their unit.

Podut said: "Almost all of the public sector is malfunctioning, it must be changed completely and replaced with capable people".
