78% of the Romanian wanted to convey the political class in Bucharest that were tired of mediocrity and awkward.
Romanians absence massive (78%) in the Euro-parliamentarians election. And me, too. But not because Romanians would be Europeans without civic spirit. On the contrary. Romanians have not gone to vote because they do not want to be represented in the European Parliament of all kinds of specimens that have nothing in common. Romania wanted to convey the political class in Bucharest that were tired of mediocrity and awkward. Only, instead of being worried about the signal received from the election, representatives of the Romanian political class continued polemic comedy of statements even on election day. Romanian politicians seem unable to understand that just these sterile confrontation of bad taste made 78% of the Romanian not to vote.
Without underrate the importance of Euro-parliamentarians elections or their role as an institution of democracy at European level, however, as in 2007, and now in 2009, their European stake is subordinate to a internal political stakes. Euro-parliamentarians elections function as a test for political parties in Romania, who are preparing for in the fall confrontation of presidential election.
