WARSAW, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Central European currencies remained under pressure on Tuesday as worries about global growth weighed on emerging-market assets, with the Romanian leu EURRON= slipping around 0.2% after the country's ruling coalition collapsed.
Elsewhere, the Hungarian forint EURHUF= was near recent lows before the National Bank of Hungary announced its rate decision at 1200 GMT. The bank was expected to leave its base rate HUINT=ECI unchanged at 0.9%.
Romania's ruling Social Democrats lost their small parliamentary majority on Monday after a junior ally quit government over policy, leaving them vulnerable to a confidence vote.
"There's bit of uncertainty related to the government's fate and the market now responds to that," said a dealer with a foreign bank in Bucharest.
The leu, bouncing around its lowest level this month, was the worst-performing currency in the region, down 0.21% against the euro at 0755 GMT to be bid at 4.7355. The Polish zloty EURPLN= was bid at 4.3676 against the euro, down 0.13% from Monday's close. The Czech crown EURCZK= was little changed at 25.784. The forint remained on soft ground.
"The forint moves on a weakening path, with the currency opening at 329.1 (per euro) this morning," Erste Investment analysts said in a note.
"This is a smaller technical level, however, the 330 mark could be much more important from a psychological aspect. If that were to fall, one could start worrying that the currency could suddenly head north (weaker)."
Polish bond yields fell for a second day in a row, after reports the government plans to move its budget out of deficit in 2020 for the first time in 30 years on Tuesday.
At 0859 GMT, the Polish 10-year yield PL10YT=RR was down 4 basis points at 1.898%.
"In Poland, there was also a noticeable narrowing of asset swap spreads, which in turn could be associated with the work being started on next year's budget," PKO Bank Polski analysts said in a note, "The lack of a deficit means much lower than expected Treasury securities issues on the primary market."
Czech 10-year yields CZ10YT=RR were little changed at 1.088%
Stocks traded lower, with Warsaw's WIG 20 .WIG20 down 0.31% and Prague's PX .PX index down 0.38% at 0936 GMT.
Stock markets have been hit by concerns about global trade and a slowdown in major economies.
