The National Salvation Front government bowed to the clamor from the opposition Tuesday and announced that it has split into two groups, one to govern Romania and the other to take part in coming elections. In a further concession, senior front member Silviu Brucan said the front will propose that a coalition government be formed until the planned May 20 elections--in effect agreeing to share the power it assumed during the December revolution that toppled Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.
