Johannis clearly ahead, but run-off election needed


The presidential race in Romania will be decided in a runoff election. In the presidential election yesterday, according to polls, none of the 14 candidates reached an absolute majority.

Incumbent Klaus Johannis therefore easily secured first place. The leading candidate of the Liberal Party (PNL), which has been in power for a few days, received between 39 and 40 percent of the votes cast. Behind them are candidates for the Social Democrats (PSD), ex-head of government Viorica Dancila, and head of the young reform party "Union saves Romania" (USR), Dan Barna, head-to-head for the final round of the electoral round against Johannis.
