The candidate of the Democratic Party, Marian Lupu will remain in the first position on the ballot, but the word "retired" will be stamped next to his name. The stamp will be applied by members of the electoral across the country.

Following the decision of the Court of Appeal, the CEC has cancelled the decision of Marian Lupu to be registered as candidate in the presidential elections of 30 October.
