Bucharest.

Romanians began voting Sunday morning to choose 33 people who will serve as representatives of the country in the European Parliament for the next five years, Romanian Mediafax agency reported.

Elections for the European Parliament started on June 4 and end on June 7. Beside Romanians, voters in France, Germany, Spain and Poland are also expected to elect their MEPs Sunday.
