USR MEP Bulai notifies European forums about suspicions of electoral fraud


 Save Romania Union (USR - opposition) MEP Iulian Bulai, a leader of the ALDE group in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, said on Thursday that he had notified the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODHIR) of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe about the poor organisation of the June 9 elections and the suspicions of fraud at several polling stations.

"The rule of law and solid democracy mean clear procedures and impeccably conducted electoral processes, not experiments, not improvisations. The so-called organisation of these elections could not have gone well in the absence of digitalisation and adequate logistics. Tens of thousands of representatives and observers at the polling stations had to make an effort beyond their strength. It was a process that exceeded human capacity. and we now see the hundreds of challenges on obvious evidence of fraud, which are not taken into account, by an apparatus that works anti-democratic," Bulai added in a press statement.

USR is said to have repeatedly requested the admission of the recount of votes at the precincts with serious suspicions of fraud and erroneous writings in the minutes. USR also says that in the few polling stations in the country where the recount was accepted, the result confirmed the accusations that the Social Democratic Party and the National Liberal Party (PNL) would have rigged the elections.
