President Traian Basescu appeals, as promised, to unconventional communication means, chosen from the non-conventional media to promote the uninominal voting system he has submitted for a referendum due to take place later in November. He has opened an information hot-line with his own voice recorded.

The answering machine calls Romanians to the referendum, in order to "clean up the political class". Callers' options are "Press 1 to find out what the uninominal vote is. Press 2 to find out why the referendum on November 25 is important for you. Press 3 to understand what is in your power to do and 4 to find out about the European Parliament elections. If you want to leave a message, press 5".
