Preliminary election results are in for Romania. But the outcome isn’t yet clear. Either the ruling PSD party is going to just squeak back in with a narrow majority — or it’s going to be a hung Parliament, which could lead to new elections fairly soon.
Nobody’s on the streets here. There are accusations of fraud, yes, but they appear to be retail rather than wholesale. (See my earlier post for the reasons why.) The OSCE will come out with a report in the next day or two, but meanwhile nobody’s getting too agitated.
For those of you who want the nitty gritty details — which party got how many votes, and such — you can find some of them over here. I’ll try to post regular updates until some conclusion is reached.
