Strange :

Both recent constitutionnal Referenda in FYROM and Romania reportedly got more than 90% of the casted Votes in their favour, but did Not attract enough Voters, Missing a Quorum's threshhold.

However, the Establishment's Medias claim a "Victory" in FYROM, Contrary to what they do for Romania, where they claim a "Failure" (sic) !

And that, even if Romanian Voters were almost 4 Millions, while FYROM's Voters were about 600 Thousands only...

+In Addition, the recalcitrant "Socialist" Government in Romania had notoriously Delayed, and several Times Postponed, the Date of the Referendum, (from 2015 up to 2018 !).


That FYROM Referendum was basically about Sharing the Names "North Macedonia" and "South Macedonia", between Skopje and Athens. Somewhat, perhaps, Dangerous for the Future, as it risks to assimilate this exceptional situation with those of ..."Northern Ireland", and/or "South and Northern Korea", (etc), Historically full of Bloody Tensions.  

In parallel, that Romanian Referendum was just about simply Reminding the Fact that ECHR's Article 12, on the Human "Right to Marry and Found a Family", speaks Only about "Men and Women", but Not about "LGBTI"...

Despite the Contents' variation, the Electoral Situations are strikingly Similar.

=> Why, then,  all those gross Double Standards ?
