The separatists’ official news agency Olvia-Pres quotes electoral officials Monday as announcing that Shevciuc won 73.9 percent of the votes to defeat the other candidate, Anatoly Kaminski, in Sunday’s runoff.

Igor Smirnov, who led pro-Moscow Trans-Dniester for 20 years, came third in the first round on Dec. 11.
