President Klaus Iohannis addressed Romanias on Friday in a last ditch effort to convince them to cast their vote on Sunday’s parliamentary elections.
“We made it to the end of the election campaign and, this moment, the most important message I want to give to Romanians is a clear and simple one: “Dear Romanians, go vote! Go vote and do not let others choose for you what will happen in our Romania! Regardless o whether you have and option or you still don’t, it is important that you go vote,” the Romanian president stated on Friday at the Cotroceni Palace.
“It was said these days that this election campaign did not manage to stir emotions […] like others did. Still, voting day stirs emotions. On Sunday we go and choose Romania’s Parliament for the next four years. It is an important choice. It is important because we want together to continue to make Romania better. It is important because we must build together a strong and prosperous Romania,” Iohannis said.
The head of state also stressed that voting plays an essential role in a democracy. “In a democracy, the voter becomes active and a participant only on voting day. Do not miss, dear Romanians, this opportunity, go and vote although you will make a last-minute decision!,” Iohannis said.
