Presidential elections in Moldova’s breakaway region of Transdnestr are set for a second round run-off after early results showed no candidate would win more than 50 percent of the vote.

 

Ex-parliament speaker Yevgeny Shevchuk leads Supreme Council speaker Anatoly Kaminsky by 38.5 percent to 26.5 percent.

 

Current Transdnestr leader Igor Smirnov has garnered 24.8 percent of the vote.

 

The Russian-speaking region gained de facto independence from Moldova in 1992. It is seeking full independence but Moldova says it is only prepared to allow autonomy.
