Ponta mai bine îl lasa somer pe Corlatean decît sa le dea o sansa românilor din UK, sa voteze. Orice numai sa nu înfinteze noi sectii de votare.
BUCHAREST (Reuters) – Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean resigned on Monday, a day after thousands of people rallied in support of compatriots abroad who were turned away as they tried to vote in the first round of a presidential election.
Corlatean, who was told by leftist Prime Minister Victor Ponta to ensure the Nov. 16 runoff vote runs smoothly or risk losing his job, said on Saturday there would be more voting booths abroad but no increase in the number of polling stations.
Ponta won the first round of the election by a 10 percentage point margin over Klaus Iohannis, an ethnic German mayor backed by two centre-right opposition parties. Ponta is likely to win the runoff vote, opinion polls showed.
Romanians living in other European Union states and other countries who planned to vote at their embassies complained of long queues, while some polling stations ran out of a form that must be signed before a ballot could be cast.
