The Central Electoral Bureau informs that centralization of the nationwide results has not been finalized in 3 constituencies. The centralization in physical format has been completed in Sibiu, and the centralization in electronic format is underway. A vote recount has been ordered in the Bucharest polling stations No. 35, 455, 479 and 526, due to minor inconsistencies in the minutes which can however be remedied only on the basis of the decisions of the county electoral bureaus or of the Central Electoral Bureau, BEC spokesman Mircea Preotescu said, adding that at the constituency electoral bureau for Romanians abroad, the centralization procedure is about to be finalized, being somewhat held back by time zone differences.

“The BEC has taken all the necessary measures to expedite the resolution of the notified issues and to settle as soon as possible all the situations arisen and complete the centralization process,” the cited official said, according to Agerpres.
