SUKHUM, March 26. /TASS/. Voting at the runoff elections to Abkhazia’s parliament, the National Assembly, is over as polling stations across the republic closed at 20:00 Moscow time.
Runoff elections were held in 22 out of 35 one-seat constituencies. Forty-four candidates who won the majority of votes in the first round of elections are vying for 22 seats in the parliament. The winner in the second round of polling is a candidate who scores more votes that his or her opponent, regardless of the voter turnout.
Nevertheless, according to Abkhazia’s Central Election Commission, the voter turnout was rather high and stood at 49.3% as at 18:00 Moscow time.
Results of the voting will be announced on Monday.
At the previous round, held on March 12, MPs were elected to Abkhazia’s parliament in 12 constituencies.
The first round of the elections to Abkhazia’s sixth parliament had the voter turnout exceeding 50% or above the 25% threshold in all 35 constituencies. The polls were declared valid.
The term of the current parliament expires in March. Elections were held in one-seat constituencies, with 137 candidates vying for 35 seats in the parliament, including 24 nominated by political parties and 113 self-nominees.
