Pro-Russia candidate ahead in Moldova election

Presidential candidate Igor Dodon gives a press conference after polls closed at the Socialists Party of Moldova (PSRM) headquarters in Chisinau, on October 30, 2016A pro-Russia candidate came out top in Moldova’s presidential election, according to incomplete results issued early Monday which left it unclear whether he could beat his pro-EU rival in the first round. Ex-Soviet Moldova went to the polls Sunday in its first popular presidential election since the 1990s, seen as a tug-of-war between supporters of closer relations with Russia and those seeking EU integration. With more than 95 percent of the ballots counted, pro-Moscow candidate Igor Dodon was well ahead, on 49.2 percent, teetering on the brink of an outright win which would avoid the need for a run-off second round vote.
