TIRASPOL, December 26 (Itar-Tass) —— The turnout in the second round of the Transdniestrian presidential elections has made 51.74%. The Central Elections Commission (CEC) of the self-proclaimed republic of Transdniestria has made public the final turnout on Monday.
“The turnout has made 51.74%. The turnout was earlier reported to reach 51.57%, but this figure did not take into account the results from a polling station in Bendery. We received the results from this polling station and the final turnout was adjusted,” CEC Secretary Maria Melnik told reporters. She noted that the turnout turned out to be lower than in the first round on December 11. Then the turnout reached 58.88% from 418,000 eligible voters. A lower turnout is explained by the fact that no turnout threshold is set in the runoff and four candidates dropped from the presidential race. All these four candidates gained about eight percent.
Transdniestria elected from two candidates, namely the former parliamentary speaker Yevgeny Shevchuk and incumbent parliamentary speaker Anatoly Kaminsky, to rule the self-proclaimed republic for next five years. The ballots are being counted at district and territorial election committees. The CEC pledged to make the preliminary election results at 10:00 local time (12:00 Moscow time) on Monday.
