ForMin Melescanu discusses in Paris with observers accredited to polling stations
Minister of Foreign Affairs Teodor Melescanu and Romania's Ambassador in Paris Bogdan Mazuru met on Sunday with the observers accredited to the polling stations in Paris to discuss the way the voting process unfurled in the capital of France in the two rounds for the election of the Romanian President.
"The observers present at the meeting with the Foreign Minister said that voting in Paris is going on faster than in the first round, but unlike then, the voters turned out in higher numbers in the earlier hours, also as a result of the calls made by the Embassy and the Foreign Ministry that they should use the entire 14-hour interval to hit the polls," informs a Foreign Ministry release issued on Sunday.
According to the cited source, Melescanu explained the observers what the Ministry's responsibilities are in connection with the measures that can be taken to help the voting process abroad and how these have been put into practice, and also presented the measures taken by the Foreign Ministry Offices and the Romanian Embassy in Paris to streamline voting in the second election round.
"Minister Teodor Melescanu listened to the observers' suggestions for measures that can be set in place to improve the ballot casting process for the Romanians who live abroad or wish to exercise their right to vote outside country borders. The Foreign Minister said he will consider these proposals in working out a bill to amend the current electoral law," the Foreign Ministry informs.AGERPRES
