Abstract: The electoral system refers to the stipulations pertaining to the exertion of the civic voting right, whereby a citizen is either called upon to appoint the parliamentarians, or is canvassed for his opinion about (as well as his approval of) a specific project or an agenda. The vote can bemore or less comprehensive and it can also be exercised in different ways. Romania is still looking for the appropriate method to designate the representatives, starting from a party-list proportional representation system, and moving on to a plurality voting system (the “uninominal” vote). Nevertheless, the manner in which the latter operated was far from satisfactory so that the Romanian electoral system is currently undergoing a reformation process. In the course of this process, a glance at the diverse solutions that have been adopted by the member states of the European Union could provide an answer as to whether an ideal voting system exists.
