Abkhazia: Presidential elections announced valid
The official turnout is nearly 54% according to the latest figures.
All the polling stations in Abkhazia closed at 20:00 local time (19:00 Moscow time). Tabagua said that 68,000 voters out of 123 included in the register of voters had turned up at the polling stations. He said that the percentage ratio would be announced later because those figures were just preliminary.
Under a law “On New Elections of the President of Abkhazia”,
the polls should be considered valid if no less than 50% of the voters included
in the register of electors take part in them.
