The results of these elections have revealed two contradictory features in the options of the electorate: at the local level, we can clearly see a trend of preserving local structures, voters going for the incumbent candidate for the seat of the Mayor and for the County Council they voted for a well- known person, with the highest degree of notoriety, certified by two terms as Mayor of Iasi; while in the general elections, a renewal trend of the Romanian Parliament, long waited as a renewal of the entire political class, was clearly seen.
