The electoral campaign for the first European Parliamentary elections in Romania took off last weekend with a decision of the Interior Ministry in Bucharest to separately organize in the same day a referendum regarding the introduction of the uninominal voting system.

That is, voting sections are to be organized separately for the two polls.

Interior minister Cristian David announced that the decision was mainly based on logistic factors: there are different systems registering the results. The decision plans to counteract any fraud suppositions.

According to Radio France International, David did not give any further details on the issue, arguing that all details would be established in the next meeting of the government.
