The last day Romanians abroad can apply to vote in the presidential elections
This is the last day Romanians abroad can apply to vote in presidential elections. So far, approximately 60 000 Romanians have opted for voting online. According to the site votstrainatate.ro, 28 000 requests for voting in a poling station have been made and almost 30 000 people chose voting by mail. The Romanian ambassador in Great Britain asked for extending the deadline, given the small number of appliances so far. Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă said, last week, she asked the Permanent Electoral Authority to extend the deadline, to help the number of those who can vote by mail rise. PNL asked for the same thing.
A network that sent Ukrainian workers, using fake Romanian documents, to the French part of the Antilles has been brought down
A network that sent Ukrainian workers, using fake Romanian documents, to the French part of the Antilles has been brought down, according to a source close to the investigation. The island needs reconstruction work to rebuild after hurricane Irma that caused immense damage in 2017. The presence of some Ukrainian workers on the reconstruction sites, especially on the roofs, alerted the police. After retaining and questioning the 20 workers, police concluded that the network was organized in Ukraine, Romania and France. The co-organizers of this network will be questioned soon, according to the same source, cited by France Presse.
