Vasile Cepoi certain to win Romanian town election

The small town of Draguseni in Romania is in for an interesting mayoral election tomorrow. The incumbent, Vasile Cepoi, is seeking a fourth term as Mayor, but he is facing a stiff challenge from two other candidates, both of whom just happen to be called ... Vasile Cepoi.
The two challengers are representing two different centre-right political parties, so the current centre-left Mayor Cepoi is convinced that it is all part of a nefarious right-wing plot to oust him by any means possible. The two challengers - who are not related, either to each other, or to the incumbent mayor - deny any collusion, and maintain that they are standing for election on their own individual merits and platforms.
To be fair, Vasile is a hugely popular name in Romania, and Cepoi is also a common family name in that region of Romania near the Moldova border.

The winner of the Draguseni election was ... Vasile Cepoi
