Roma relocation scores Romania mayor a major vote win
BUCHAREST - A Romanian mayor, criticised by rights groups for relocating Roma gypsy families and building a concrete wall to separate off a Roma neighbourhood, scored the biggest share of the vote in local elections, official data showed on Thursday.
Catalin Chereches, the incumbent 33-year-old mayor of Baia Mare, won 86 percent in Sunday's election, which was held just days after local authorities relocated dozens of Roma families to the administrative buildings of a dismantled copper plant.
