The authors present the most important institutional changes (new regulations concerning the electoral system, the registration of political parties and the electoral campaigns) and offer a summary of the most important political developments preceding the election. Following this, they engage in an analysis of the electoral results, first from a national perspective and then from the vantage point of the Hungarian community in Romania.
