Top Gymnasts, Good citizens, too

[updated 16,15 GMT]

Silvia Stroescu Stroescu voted in Bucharest Silvia Stroescu, glad to hear that you have voted, too!
Silvia Stroescu: yes, it's our duty as responsible citizens.
Q: What do you expect after these elections?
Silvia Stroescu: I want to have a better situation in Romania...( "sa fie mai bine"...)
Q: These are exactly same words as Oana's, few minutes ago, nice to see that you are so informed about situation in Romania...
[ when we have made the arrangements for photos, we didn't tell to girls that we need some answers too, we wanted to have back from them real, first hand answers and not "prepared" ones]
Silvia Stroescu: Oana voted already? I should went earlier to vote, ha-ha!
Q: How you see the future of Romania, for the years to come?
Silvia Stroescu: I hope these elections will mark a change in the country situation, to reduce the poverty level ("sa nu mai fie saracie")
Q:...Again, you have almost the same (very mature) thoughts as Oana, it's a pleasure to see this from a young student.
Silvia Stroescu:...and I hope that Romania will join soon the European Union.
[Romania is supposed to join E.U. in 2007, the delay is mostly due to communists which have ruled, directly or from background, the country past 15 years]
Q: Silvia, what do you believe is the most important thing regarding these elections?
Silvia Stroescu: The most important thing is that all people go to vote ("sa voteze toata lumea, sa nu stea acasa"). We can make a change , an improvement, with such a little effort.
Q: Your long term plans?
Silvia Stroescu: I hope that , finally, Romania will take the good course to a n economy market, to improve the level of life for everybody. I want, as I told you before, to make my life here, in Romania, and I hope I will be able to contribute myself at the progress, after I finish my university studies. I like to travel, just been in Japan recently, we can learn from other countries experiences, but we, Romanians, need first to take care about our own country, to do our best for improve the situation at "home".
Q: Thank you.

[Nov 29, 13,30 GMT/ Voting Day]
Oana Ban just voted in Cluj, one hour ago.

[updated 15,30 GMT]:
Q:Oana, thanks for the photos, you looks great!
Oana Ban: No mention, thanks.
Q: How do you feel after your (first time) voting?
Oana Ban: It was an interesting experience and I hope it will helps.
Q:What do you expect from these elections?
Oana Ban: I want to have a better situation in Romania, the life of regular citizens to be improved. I want and hope to see less poverty in the country, in the years to come.There is so much poverty now around...
Q: You are a young student now, what your colleagues are saying / hope from these elections?
Oana Ban: From what I've heard at my colleagues from University, we need (badly) that the voice of the young generation, the students desires and opinions, to be listened and respected more in future, more that in past years.If we want to improve the situation in the country, the young people can do a lot.
Q: It seems that you have some very informed colleagues at University, this is a good sign. Oana, we will not ask directly what you have voted (or will not publish that part anyway, before elections ending abroad), according to Romanian laws [note:which the ruling party did not respected much, anyway, past few years or last weeks], but tell me about what you have heard, what opinions on these elections have the people from your region [legendary Transylvania, center of Romania, seen as a pro-West region] ?
Oana Ban: from what I have seen and heard last weeks, people around here voted for a change and want to have a new type of leadership, a new type of Government and Parliament, with more respect to people, to their needs.
Q: thanks.What about the ring on your finger, did you get engaged (and didn't told us?...)
Oana Ban(laughing): No, no, I bought it from "Cora"supermarket, when I went with all the girls, after Athens, you can ask them (still laughing).
Q: OK, I believe you, just wanted to check, we don't want to miss this event...still single?...
Oana Ban: yeeees. ("Daaa....")
Q: Thanks again, that's it for now, we have on the other line with Romania the conference ready with Silvia Stroescu, too. Bye for now and good luck to school!
Oana Ban: Thank you.
