The Romanian constitutional referendum which aimed to modify the definition of “family” from article 48 of the Romanian Constitution was held on the 6th and 7th October. Despite the extraordinary measures employed by the Government to organize the referendum over two days, the turnout was unexpectedly low. Thus, only 21,08% of the voting population participated in the referendum, according to the Central Electoral Bureau, which meant that the threshold of validation was not attained (30% of the population with a right to vote). Preliminary results of the referendum show that 91,57% of people voted in favour of the amendment, while a merely 6,46 % dissented. Despite this, the national referendum that cost around EUR 40 million was invalidated and will produce no effects upon the Romanian Constitution.
