TIRASPOL, December 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Yevgeny Shevchuk is leading in the second round of the Transdniestrian presidential elections with 72% of votes after 84% of ballots had been counted. These figures were received from the observers at the polling stations. His rival Anatoly Kaminsky gained 21% of votes. Seven percent voted against all candidates.
Kaminsky’s election staff confirmed the loss of their candidate. “He is far behind his rival in the second round of the presidential elections,” an unnamed source in Kaminsky’s election staff said.
The Transdniestrian Central Elections Commission (CEC) will make public the preliminary election results on Monday. “I will make public the preliminary election results at 10:00 local time (12:00 Moscow time) on Monday. Then we will decide whether or not to find the election results valid and will make public the final results within three days,” CEC Chairman Pyotr Denisenko told reporters after the voting.
Foreign observers believe that “the elections passed in the well organized way and without any major violations, which could have affected the election returns.” “The most important thing is that Transdniestria passed an exam for democracy with excellence. The opposition candidate beat the incumbent president at the elections, and the republic keeps developing calmly on the basis of democratic European values,” Russian politician Sergei Baburin, who observed the elections, said.
