"According to preliminary results, he (Shevchuk) received 73.88 percent of votes while his opponent Anatoly Kaminsky received 19.67 percent," Central Election Commission chairman Pyotr Denisenko told reporters.

Shevchuk competed against current speaker Anatoly Kaminsky, who was backed by Russia, in a run-off on Sunday.
