Romanians Lackluster About EU Elections

Campaigning for seats in the European Parliament officially started on Thursday, with around 350 independent candidates and parties’ representatives competing in June 7 elections.

This will be the second time that Romanians will vote for a representative in the European legislative.

Opinion polls show that Romanians are less interested in the poll than ever before in a situation that could see the abstention rate hit a record of 70 per cent. 

Most of people say they are not intending to vote because they have little knowledge of the role of MEPs or because voting would not change anything.

The elections are taking place in a heated political atmosphere in Romania, with many workers and public servants demanding better pay.
