Ion Eliman, who served as mayor of Debsalo, a small town in southern Romania, died on September 15 at a hospital in the capital Bucharest as a result of coronary heart disease complications after contracting the disease.
Two weeks after his death, a mayoral election was held, and surprisingly, most of Debslo residents decided to give him their vote again and elected him for a third term as mayor with 64 percent of the vote.
Sources in Debslu told local media that “Eliman’s name has already been printed on the ballot papers and could not be removed before election day. We will hold new elections soon.”
Many residents also decided to visit Eliman’s grave after the election to pay tribute to the mayor who died in Corona. A video posted on social media in Romania showed a large group of town residents gathering around Eliman’s grave after the election, when one of the residents was heard saying “this is your victory”.
Another town resident explained to local media why she decided to give her vote to the mayor who died from Corona two weeks before the election: “He was a real mayor for us. He did everything for the town and respected all the rules. I don’t think we will see a mayor like him again.”
Eliman, a former Romanian naval officer, was a member of the Left Social Democratic Party and was 57 at the time of his death.
