Romania: President Klaus Iohannis wins second term with huge victory over socialist Dancila

Romania’s centre-right President Klaus Iohannis won a second term early Monday, crushing his socialist challenger in a presidential election runoff with a pledge to resume judicial reforms slowed down by successive Social Democrat (PSD) governments.

Two separate exit polls showed Iohannis garnered 64%-67% of the vote, with former prime minister Viorica Dancila of the left-leaning PSD taking 33-36%.

The winner today is modern Romania, European Romania, the normal Romania,” Iohannis told reporters in his victory speech.
