    Romanian villagers have voted to re-elect a dead man as their mayor, to prevent his living rival winning.

    Neculai Ivascu - who led Voinesti for almost two decades - died from a liver disease on Sunday, too late to cancel the contest.

    The village's loyal residents still gave him 23 more votes than his rival, Gheorghe Dobrescu of the ruling National Liberal Party.

    "I know he died, but I don't want change," one villager told Romanian TV.
    ...

    Impressive as the election of a dead guy undoubtedly is, it does not quite match the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the wholly fictitious Andre Kasongo Ilunga has been Minister for Foreign Trade since February 2007, ...

    I think the villager had it right. Dead guy or liberal, I'd vote for the dead guy too.
