Interesting Facts

1. As the newspaper "Sovereign Moldova" of 10 December 1991, despite the prohibitions imposed by Smirnov in Transnistria in many places it was still possible opening of polling stations. And this happened not only in rural areas with ethnic Romanian majority, but even in Tiraspol, a polling station was opened in the premises of the local Pedagogical Institute. This was possible thanks to the courage shown by the rector of the institution, Mihai Coşcodan, and his deputy, Peter Tolocenco.

The Moscow edition newspaper "Izvestia" wrote of 10 December 1991 that "although [Snegur] had counter-elections can be considered an overwhelming victory." Already the afternoon of December 8 participated in the vote about. 60 percent of citizens voting. Moscow correspondent newspaper also reported that not only Moldovans, i.e. those of Romanian nationality and minorities voted for Snegur, this is true in southern localities inhabited mostly by the Gagauz, but also in Transnistria.
