0

TBILISI: An ally of billionaire Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili on Monday basked in an overwhelming win at presidential polls in the ex-Soviet state to replace larger-than-life modernizer Mikheil Saakashvili after a decade in power. Giorgi Margvelashvili, a politically inexperienced academic from Ivanishvili’s Georgian Dream coalition, was cantering to victory with some 62 percent of the vote at the election Sunday after ballots from over 70 percent of polling stations had been tallied, the election commission said.
