Romanian legislative election, 1961
Parliamentary elections were held in Romania on 5 March 1961. Voters were presented with a single list from the People's Democratic Front, which was dominated by the Romanian Workers Party. The Front won all 465 seats in the Great National Assembly.
Candidates were elected in single member constituencies, and had to receive over 50% of the vote. If no candidate passed this threshold, or if voter turnout in the constituency was less than 50%, re-runs were held until the requirements were met. Candidates could be nominated by the People's Democratic Front or mass organisations, although the latter were monitored by the Front. Voters had the option of voting against the Front candidates.
