TIRASPOL, December 12 (Itar-Tass) —— The incumbent president of the Transdniestrian self-proclaimed republic Igor Smirnov is leading at the Transdniestrian presidential elections, according to the exit polls, which the Transdniestrian news agency Vector made public after the polling stations closed.
Smirnov gained 47.38% of votes. The former parliament speaker Yevgeny Shevchuk is running second with 23.21%, the incumbent parliament speaker Anatoly Kaminsky is ranked third with 22.06% of votes. Other seven percent came to the leader of the local Communist Party Oleg Khorzhan, the leader of the Breakthrough movement Dmitry Soin and political scientist Andrei Safonov. The protest vote reached 0.58%. If the Transdniestrian Central Election Commission (CEC) confirms these figures, Smirnov and Shevchuk will run in the second round of the presidential elections on December 25.
