Violent clashes between political supporters ahead Sunday poll

On the last stretch of the electoral campaign for the municipal elections due on Sunday, 10 June, violent clashes erupted in several localities throughout Romania between the supporters of the candidates.

Earlier today, two groups of supporters violently clashed in Mangalia (South East), and three people ended up at the emergency ward of the local hospital with serious injuries.

The scandal burst after the supporters of the Social Democratic Party tried to place a banner criticizing the Democratic Liberal runner for Mayor Zanfir Iorguş. The group was stopped by Iorgus's sympathizers who started to push and kick the Social Democrats.

The clashes had been interrupted by the Police and gendarmes who had to use tear gases to separate the two groups.

Two people had been severely injured, one with an arm fracture and a policeman has been bitten on the hand.

An other violent incident took place in Mehedinti (West) earlier this week, when the acting Mayor of Vīnjuleţ commune running for re-election accompanied by a group of Roma, took by assault the rally of his opponent.
