Photo from London gets viral on the day of presidential election in Romania: “Mi-e dor de tine/ I Miss You”
A lit message reading “Mi-e dor de tine/ I miss you” was displayed downtown London, UK, in Canary Wharf within the design project ”Lights ON Romania”, part of a festival of lights born in Cluj Napoca and arrived at its second edition.
The light installation is the more meaningful as it comes on the day of presidential election in Romania, while hundreds of thousands of Romanians who left the country to work abroad were queuing to vote to elect the Romanian President, just like in any other elections taken in place in Romania in the past years. This year there has been a record turnout among the Romanians in Diaspora, with more than 600,000 turning out to the polls.
Romanians are the second largest community of immigrants in UK after the Poles and rank second in the turnout top in Diaspora in today’s elections.
