Margvelashvili continues to hold strong lead in Georgian presidential election

By Monday morning the Georgian Central Elections Commission calculated the results of voting in the Sunday presidential elections from 91% of polling stations.

According to these results, the candidate of the ruling Georgian Dream coalition, Giorgi Margvelashvili, garnered 62.09% of the vote. The candidate of the former ruling party, David Bakradze, comes second with 21.90% and the leader of the Democratic Movement - United Georgia Nino Burjanadze - third with 10.06%.

The turnout in the Sunday elections was 46%. Georgia does not have a minimum required turnout.

In order to win a presidential candidate has to collect a 50%+1 votes.

Georgia has 3,537,719 registered voters. Voting was organized at 3,741 polling stations, 52 of them in nearly 40 foreign countries. There were no polling stations in Russia, though it possesses a large Georgian community, due to the absence of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The results of several exit polls were announced earlier. According to them, Margvelashvili collected between 65% and 68% of the vote with his closest rival Bakradze receiving between 17% and 22%.

Bakradze already congratulated Margvelashvili on the victory.
