Exit polls made public last night at 9 p.m., when voting officially ended, showed Adrian Nastase and the Social Democrat-Humanist (PSD+PUR) Union leading both the presidential and parliamentarian elections.

Adrian Nastase, the Union's presidential candidate got 41.1 percent of the votes, while Traian Basescu, the candidate of the Liberal and Democratic (PNL-PD) Alliance has 35.2 percent of the votes, according to the CURS exit poll, commissioned by Antena 1 private TV station, owned by Dan Voiculescu, the Humanist Party leader.

A second exit poll, done by Insomar and ordered by public television TVR, also places Nastase first in the race, but with 43.7 percent, while Basescu is nine percents behind, with 34.7.

According to the CURS exit poll, the third place is taken by Corneliu Vadim Tudor, the candidate from the Greater Romania Party (PRM), with 12.4 percent, followed by Marko Bela, from the Hungarian Democratic Alliance (UDMR) with 4.2 percent.

The Insomar poll shows slight differences, as Tudor occupies the third place with 11.6 percent, followed by Marko Bela with 4.2.Both exit polls show Romania's president will be decided in a second round of elections, with Nastase and Basescu fighting for the presidency, as had been expected.

The PSD+PUR Union also leads in the parliamentary elections, as the CURS poll shows that for the Deputies Chamber the Union has 38.9 percent, while the Alliance has 34.4 percent, followed by PRM with about 13 percent.

The Insomar poll placed the Union in first place with 40.1 percent, the Alliance in second with 33.8 percent, followed by PRM, with 13 percent.
Neither party has won a majority that would enable it to form a government, the polls indicated.

Official results to be known tomorrow.
In the parliamentary races, 314 seats in the Deputies Chamber and 134 seats in the Senate will be allocated proportionally to parties that win more than 5 percent of the vote.

The opposition has warned against possible "massive electoral fraud" by the government, and is setting up its own vote counting system.
The government has denied the charges.
About 3,300 Romanian and 50 foreign observers monitored the election.
