Voters in one Romanian town face a potentially confusing trip to the polls on Sunday, as the three candidates for mayor all share the same name.
The incumbent mayor in Draguseni, Vasile Cepoi, is seeking a fourth term in office, but is facing a challenge from two other Vasile Cepois.
The three men aren’t related – Vasile is a popular Romanian nickname and Cepoi is a common name in the region.
This unusual situation guarantees “Vasile Cepoi” a win.
But one voter has come up with his own way of telling the men apart. Gheorghe Ariton tells Jurnalul he calls them: “Vasile Cepoi from the valley, Vasile Cepoi from the hill and Vasile Cepoi the original. The original!”
