The main types of dividing lines manifesting in Romania in 1992 were ideological, between the left and the right (which manifested rather more like a rupture between the ones who had won and the ones who had lost as a result of the political change), ethnic (visible especially in Transylvania, due to the strong antagonism between PUNR and UDMR), regional (which differentiated between Moldova and Muntenia, who had voted for FDSN and Bucharest and Transylvania, where CDR had won) and rural urban (Ion Iliescu had won 54% of the votes in the rural areas and only 36% in the large cities, while Emil Constantinescu was the favorite in the large cities, where he had obtained 42% of the votes, in contrast to the 24% gained in the rural area) (Ghebrea, 2007: 260).
One of the paradoxes which characterized the beginning of the transition period in Romania was that the 1990 and 1992 elections were the only elections after 1989 which were won by a single political party: FSN in 1990 and FDSN in 1992.
His party, the FDSN, won a plurality in both chambers of Parliament.
The FSN split into two groups, led by Ion Iliescu (FDSN) and Petre Roman (FSN) in March 1992; Roman's party subsequently adopted the name Democratic Party (PD).
Rural voters, who were grateful for the restoration of most agricultural land to farmers but fearful of change, strongly favored President Ion Iliescu and the FDSN, while the urban electorate favored the CDR (a coalition made up by several parties--among which the PNTCD and the PNL were the strongest--and civic organizations) and quicker reform.
