That probably doesn't seem that odd to Europeans, but to American's that's funny and very strange. Very Happy

For me it's strange too, but maybe it worked. Wink
It's first day of election and already 50 % of voters voted.

Turnout was similar to preceding elections - about 62 %.

But results were interesting. Quite a political earthquake. Voters punished big parties and arrogant partisan bosses with their preferential votes.

Sum up here:

For me were elections pleasant surprise.
