The presidential campaign in 2014 had emphasised the bigger influence of the social-media in Romanian political communication. In the same time, we are experiencing a growing integration of different types of agenda (media, public and politicians) – in the electoral campaigns, and also in the public sphere. Into a permanent changing media environment (we never have had a stability period in the last 25 years), following the interaction between these agandas can become a good tool for public communication strategies. This analysis presents information regarding the different types of media users (TV, online, newspapers), and how the use of media can influence the political options in Romania

 The decline in voting participation is not new information: the absolute numbers are decreasing. However, the presence at presidential elections in 2014 leads us to a more careful reflection on the real trends on voting in contemporary Romania. And this is why I wanted to publish these conclusions. The only generalization we can make is that, after 2007, we are witnessing a return to greater values in electoral participation for all types of elections. And this balances the impression of a steady decline in participation, retained both the literature and the common sense. Also, we find that what seemed a general trend of decreasing participation is not, in reality, quite so categorical. The general decreasing trend in electoral participation in Romania is actually a too general label that does not capture the nuances of electoral participation in Romania. There are at least three important trends, opposite, manifesting the same time, and that should be considered when it comes to voting participation nowadays in Romania.
