The Democrat liberals, who scored a major defeat in Sunday municipal elections, are claiming that former PM Emil Boc won the Mayorship at Cluj, his hometown, local press informs today (Mon).
On the other hand, the candidate of the Social Liberal Union, Marius Nicioara, accused the Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) of fraud and asked the central election body to recount all the votes.
The leader of PDL branch in Cluj said earlier today that the results of the parallel counting carried out by PDL, Boc obtained 53,713 votes whilst Nicoara got 52,205.
The USL candidate contests the results presented by PDL ahead of the official results expected later tonight. Nicoara accused Emil Boc of trying to forge the results. He claims Boc has been spotted during the Sunday ballot in several polling stations trying to influence the vote.
Boc was Mayor of Cluj since 2004 until 2008 when he was appointed Premier by president Traian Basescu. He resigned in late January, following massive protests against corruption, anti-democratic policies and dramatic austerity.
