Presidential elections head for April 5 runoff vote

Latest update : 2009-03-23

Macedonia's presidential elections will go to a second round on April 5 after conservative front-runner George Ivanov fell short of claiming an outright victory on Sunday.

AFP - Macedonia's presidential elections will go to a second round on April 5 after conservative front-runner George Ivanov fell short of claiming an outright victory Sunday, election officials said.
   
"There will be a second round," electoral commission chief Aleksandar Novakovski told reporters with around 16 percent of the ballots tallied.
   
The first results showed Ivanov had 38.49 percent of votes, far ahead of his rivals, Ljubomir Frckoski of main opposition Social Democrats, independent candidate Ljube Boskoski and ethnic Albanian leader Imer Selmani.
   
Second place was too close to call in the early count.
