Reformatory communists request recounting of votes
At a press conference, the leadership of the Reformatory Communist Party (PCR) said that they were waiting for the official results of the parliamentary elections of 30 November in order to challenge them and demand the recounting of votes. PCR leader Ruslan Popa claimed that the results obtained by his party in elections are the expression of the trust that the party managed to win in the several months since its creation. He also contradicted those who explain the high score obtained by reformatory communists (4.92% according to preliminary results) by the fact that their symbol is similar to the symbol of the Party of Communists (PCRM), which helped it to mislead some of the PCRM voters. // IPN
