Poroshenko won his presidency in the first round, according to two exit polls, avoiding a second-round runoff that would have been required on June 15 if he had fallen short of a majority of votes. 

The poll conducted by four TV channels showed that he received 57.8 percent of the vote. Meanwhile, the national exit poll, conducted by a consortium of reputable survey takers, put Poroshenko at slightly less — 55.9 percent of the votes, but still a clear majority.

main rival, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, received 12.8 of
the vote in the TV poll and 12.9 percent in the national poll.
