The options for voting seem to be non-existent and is basically about choosing the smallest evil and I was planning on not voting.
That was until I found out that a personality from the civic society, Remus Cernea has announced that he wants to candidate for Presidency.
He is a candidate from the Green Party and he is in the process of collecting support signatures. 200 000 - two hundred thousands - signatures to be able to candidate for presidency in a country of less than 20 millions.
Yes, Romania has one of the most undemocratic and tailored-for-the-current-in-power election laws. Here (in Romanian) is a summary made by Remus Cernea himself about the election laws in Romania.
A full report was sent by the Romanian Green Party to the European Green Party Committee and the European Greens have expressed their concern about the current state of the law in Romania.
Since I want to support him and since he has been actively ignored (ro) by mass media for the past month (since his announce), I decided to help collecting the signatures. This post is also about making the information flow to the people via the Internet.
So, if, after reading and informing yourselves about Remus Cernea and his civic actions:
- Save Carol Park Campaign (one of the few parks left in Bucharest, a 5 hectare park which contains a monument and which is untouchable, by law, was about to be given to the Orthodox Church to build a cathedral)
- stop actions for the separation between the orthodox church and the schools (discriminatory to people part of other creeds/religions)
- actions against non-tolerance based on musical preferences, style and looks - (with the Sophie Lancaster Foundation)
