The survey was commissioned by the mayor Nicușor Dan, who is running independently for a new mandate at the Capital City Hall. According to the results, Piedone would win the Capital City Hall (40.4%), while the current general mayor Nicușor Dan ranked second, a short distance away (39.3%).

On the 3rd place, with 16%, would be Sebastian Burduja, followed at a great distance by Diana Șoșoacă. Gabriela Firea does not appear among the measured candidates.

In the same survey, Bucharest residents were asked if they were satisfied with the direction in which the Capital is heading, and the percentages were similar: 48.2% – good direction, 47.5% – wrong direction.

Cristian Popescu Piedone was also mayor of Bucharest’s District 4 during the Colectiv fire time, and for this was brought to court for abuse of office and sentenced to prison. He served only one year in jail from the 4-year sentence.

PSD and PNL, expected to make a decision regarding the Capital City Hall

PNL President Nicolae Ciucă announced that today he is waiting for the results of the polls made by PNL and PSD for the designation of the common candidate for the Capital City Hall, mentioning that the decision will be taken in the coalition, after the analysis of these polls.

“We did not succeed in nominating one candidate or another (for the Capital City Hall – n.r.) because we agreed together to find out who are the most suitable people. At the moment the polls are nearing the end. We polled Sebastian Burduja and Ionuţ Lupescu. PSD know for sure that they nominated Mrs. Gabriela Firea and I think the mayor from sector 4 (Daniel Băluţă – n.r.)”, declared Nicolae Ciucă on Sunday, at Prima News.

He also stated that the final results of the polls will come on Monday, and the candidate for the Capital City Hall will be appointed after the analysis of these polls.
