Exit polls: Social Democrats in main lead in Romania parliamentary elections

Romania’s greatest political party, the Social Democrats (PSD), won a significant lead over challenging Liberals in parliamentary elections on Sunday, based on exit polls announced at 9 p.m.. The exit polls placed the PSD at more than 40%, greater than double the amount votes received through the National Liberal Party (PNL) and 4 occasions around the recently created Save Romania Union (USR), which managed as much as 10% from the votes.

Exit polls presented by two TV news channels also placed ALDE, a conventional ally from the Social Democrats, along with the Hungarian-minority group UDMR at approximately 6%, over the 5% threshold required to go into the parliament.

The outcomes come in the finish of the polling day that saw a really low turnout among youngsters, a category marked by severe political indifference. It had been expected that the low turnout would raise the PSD results, while a greater turnout might have helped the Liberals and also the USR.
