BEC rejected the request for the issuing of an exempt from BEC Decision no. 50 so that the overseas vote recount may be conducted at the headquarters of the Electoral Bureau of the Overseas Polling Centres. The request was filed by Electoral Bureau no. 48.
The Social Democratic Party (PSD), the contester of the runoff outcome, on Wednesday urged interim Foreign Minister Catalin Predoiu to not oppose the vote recount being performed in Bucharest, and also called on BEC ‘not to heed to the calls of the Democratic-Liberal Party (PD-L),’ the runoff winner, or attempt to cover what it claimed was ‘the orange electoral misery,’ alluding to alleged PD-L electoral fraud.
