At the electoral campaign participated Socialists Party, who initiated the referendum, as well as Liberal Party who urged people to stay home.
For the referendum were spent nine million lei. Citizens of the Capital have a split opinion regarding it:
"- No. -Why not? I am busy, we must go shopping."
"Will you vote? -I don't want any part of it. No. I do not wish to be part of this politic game."
"I voted for a clean city, so that I will not be ashamed to look outside from my window."
"What do you wish to change? -Everything. The roads, the hospitals, the laws."
Employees from the polling station have also signaled several breaches. In a section from Botanica, for example, a 63-year-old woman ripped the ballot because she could not understand the question.
"The woman came, spoke with employees of the polling station, received a ballot and ripped it on the spot. She didn't even enter the cabin and ripped it right in front of them. It was in Romanian language. We have to call for police and they took over" chief of No 58 polling station Silvia Nicolaev said.
A similar incident took place in the No 162 polling station from Ciocana sector. According to eyewitnesses, at many polling stations from the Capital the cabins were not sealed properly. While on the lists from a station in Buiucani were found two deceased people. There were also registered multiple cases of pictures being taken of the ballot. While near some polling stations was created an electoral chaos.
For the referendum were opened 307 polling stations and were printed over 630 thousand ballots.
