Unusual scenario. A large majority of the inhabitants of a town in southern Romania have elected the head of the village for a third term, even though he died a few days before Election Day from the corona virus. After the victory they went up to his grave lit candles and whispered to the deceased: “We made you proud”
Residents of a village in Romania have re-elected their village head even though he died of corona. After giving Lyon Eliman the victory in the mayoral election, residents of a small village in southern Romania went to his grave to light candles in his memory.
Eliman was elected to an unprecedented third term as mayor of the village of Debsalo, despite dying from corona complications days before the state elections. New elections will be held soon.
His death came too late to remove his name from the vote last Sunday, but word of his death spread quickly in the village, home to just over 3,000 people. His 57th birthday was on Election Day.
To honor the man they adored, hundreds of Debslo villagers went to the polls on Sunday and voted for Eliman anyway. After the election results showed that Eliman won 1,057 of the 1,600 votes cast in Debsalo, a large group of villagers went up to his grave to light candles and pay homage.
People with lanterns and candles gathered around Eliman’s grave, said “this is your victory” and “we made you proud, we know you are watching us”.
