College 19 candidates accuse each other of stealing votes

Liliana Minca (the Conservative Party – PC) and Teo Trandafir (the Democratic-Liberal Party – PDL) competed, yesterday, for the office of deputy at the Capital’s College 19, left vacant following the departure of Daniela Popa (PC) at the Commission for Insurance Monitoring.


The two candidates launched a long line of accusations at each other during the campaign, which culminated, yesterday, with Minca’s staff accusing PDL of buying votes for Teo Trandafir. Thus, Stefan Florescu, the campaign manager for Liliana Minca, the PSD + PC candidate in the College 19 elections, stated yesterday that groups from PDL entered blocks of flats in several areas, such as Costila and Uioara street, offering citizens between RON 50 and 100 to vote for the PDL candidate, Teo Trandafir.


Florescu added that PDL had also brought mini-buses, bearing Dambovita County license plates, loaded with young people who entered blocks of flats and “took people out to vote”. He mentioned that it was the same mini-buses used during the past two weeks in the PDL campaign.


Asked to produce evidence to support his claims, Florescu said that a TV crew had filmed the people who entered the blocks of flats.


On the other hand, Teo Trandafir’s spokesman, Cristian Preda, yesterday stated that the accusations of the Conservators are not true, and the actions PC is speaking of are probably organized by themselves “I asked at the 4th District organization, I have been told about this Stefan Florescu, and I also found out that he bought votes for Minca,” said Preda, adding that the Conservators are accusing PDL of the illegal stuff they are doing. “I’m afraid it’s one of the situations when the thief is shouting «You are the thieves!». PDL has nothing to do with this; we would be self killers if we make any illegality. (…)”, added Cristian Preda. Yesterday was also the second round of elections for the city hall in Ramnicu Valcea, after the arrest of former mayor, Mircia Gutau.
