Traian Basescu wins the Romanian presidential election

Romania – One country and two presidents

According to the exit polls,  Mircea Geoana, the Social Democratic Party candidate is the winner of presidential elections in Romania. It is far from a decisive victory, the score is pretty close (Mircea Geoana – 51.2%, Traian Basescu – 48.8%). So both candidates have declared victory in front of television cameras.

UPDATE:  7 December, at 16,00 (Bucharest time) – Central Electoral Bureau has released the final results. Traian Basescu – 50.33%    Mircea Geoana – 49, 66%

Social Democratic Party will contest the election result. Klaus Johannis, Mayor of  Sibiu, said for mass media that: “The outcome of a vote to be accepted. My nomination as a possible prime minister ends here”.

According to the results of this time, Traian Basescu won with a difference of 0.67%. I know that journalism, like politics should be done with warm heart and cool mind. As for that I shall refrain from other comment. Because I respect decision of the nearly 50% of Romanian that Traian Basescu considers it “a trifle that has riddled with them” (according to “common sense ” statement made by the old and the new president of Romania). A statement  and mentality that can be considered non-democratic and senselessly ! So more care, if your want to be president of all Romanians, Mr. Basescu !

UPDATE – 11 december – Following a request made by the Social Democrats for invalidating the second round of Romanian presidential elections, the Constitutional Court of Romania decided in the first instance that invalid votes will recounts. Note that the number of invalid votes is 136,000, twice the difference between the two candidates, Traian Basescu and Mircea Geoana.

UPDATE – 14 december – Constitutional Court of Romania has validated the presidential election. CCR decided that Traian Basescu win. Ceremony of investment of the President will take place on December 16. Mircea Geoana said that “Accept the decision of Constitutional Court of Romania”.
