UPDATE 7: Newest results available for the morning of November, 30th, after counting 87.86% of the votes:
Adrian Nastase: 40,71%
Traian Basescu: 33,55%
D.A. (PNL+PD): 31,41%
D.A. (PNL+PD): 31,00%
The very small change from the last anouncement, as well as the very small number of votes remained to be counted, give me reasons that these will be the closest figures to the final results, decimal points variations that might come from now on beeing useless.
UPDATE 6: Presidential elections map
UPDATE 5: Read through what international mass media is saying about these elections
UPDATE 4: Capitulation banned!:
Before those who cannot lead a better life unless others lead a poorer one,
Before those who hold elections as a thief would hold a bundle of fake keys,
Before those who steal from the polls, as they have been stealing from the budget, salaries and taxes for a long time,
Before those who came up from the woods and invaded the locals,
Before those who rely upon the backwardness, ignorance and weakness of the forgotten counties of Romania,
Before them, Romania prepares its capitulation.
