The Romanian Permanent Electoral Authority set up a portal where the results of the elections can be retrieved in XLS format. Usually, the results are published immediately after their validation by the Constitutional Court. Only the results of the more recent elections (after 2004) are available in re-usable format. Although the data is not explicitly licensed on their website, the datasets with the most recent elections (2009+) are also available on the Government's Open Data Portal - - thus the positive answer to the specific question.

The data can be downloaded for each scrutiny from separate pages. The Authority also set up a page where all data is available, including online viewers, at, but it is working intermittently.
