Romania's leftist Social Democratic Party said today (Mon) it would contest the electionís outcome at the Constitutional Court since the election had been rigged.
The partyís presidential candidate Mircea Geoana was leading in exit polls yesterday.
Party Secretary General Liviu Dragnea said the party would contest the election result since numerous cases of fraud had occurred during voting.
"We are convinced Romanians elected Mircea Geoana president, but Traian Basescu's state apparatus is trying fraudulently to proclaim him the victor," Dragnea said.
The Constitutional Court can annul the result of a presidential election if it turns out the election was rigged. If the result of the election is cancelled, voting will be repeated on the second Sunday after the Constitutional Court's decision.
Romaniaís incumbent President Basescu obtained 50.33 per cent of the vote in the second round of the presidential election, and Geoana got 49.66 per cent, according to final results released today by the Central Electoral Bureau after counts at all polling stations had ended.
