Moldova President Elect Maia Sandu

Chișinău: Opposition candidate Maia Sandu has won Moldova’s presidential runoff with 56% of the vote, the country’s central election commission says. Sandu is in favor of closer ties to the European Union.

Moldova’s incumbent pro-Russia President Igor Dodon, who was given the explicit backing of the Kremlin ahead of the poll, won just 43% of the votes after 99% of the ballots were counted, according to the initial results.

Sandu, who leads the Party of Action and Solidarity, has promised to lead a fight against endemic corruption in the country, which is wedged between Ukraine and EU member Romania.

The country has been hit by multiple political crises and a $1 billion (€840 million) bank fraud scheme that equates to almost 15% of its annual economic output.

Dodon, who sought a new four-year mandate, says Moldova is tired of upheaval and now needs stability.
