Witch to use spells to become MP

Witch Timisoara, from Craiova, Dolj county, is running for senate for the Alliance for the Union of Romanian Gypsies.

She's already asked other Romanian witches to help her with their spells, reports National newspaper.

"To be honest I am happy my counter-candidates are not so powerful and my spells will hit them hard. I can't wait to face them in TV debates," Timisoara said.

Alliance spokeswoman Benone Veniamin, said: "Timisoara is a witch of measureless powers, known and respected all over the European continent.

"I wonder who can beat her spells made with sacred smoke from sweet cherry tree pipe or with her 100 years clepsydra."
