PD-L vice-president Cezar Preda claims that Traian Basescu is the winner of the second rounds at the poll, "even if the results that we have show an almost perfect equality, without considering the overseas votes. There is an attempt, through TV channels, to have accredited the idea that Geoana would be a president", Cezar Preda declared for Romanian news agency Agerpres.

He said that the parallel counting indicated Traian Basescu as winner.

We engaged in this fight with all the parties against us, but we never had the citizens against us. Even though they thought they would have over 70%, I tell you they lost and I believe that tonight they will announce the parallel counting and Traian Basescu will continue to be Romania's president, because he deserves it", Preda added.
