Communist victory confirmed in Moldova poll recount | International | Reuters

CHISINAU (Reuters) - Moldova's ruling Communist party was again declared the winner on Tuesday in the ex-Soviet state's disputed parliamentary election, in a recount ordered after violent protests against the initial result.

Iurie Ciocan, Secretary of the Central Election Commission, said the results differed little from the original figures issued after the April 5 election, which gave the Communists just short of 50 percent of the vote.

"The difference between the recount and original count is not significant," Ciocan told reporters after a Commission meeting.

He read out figures showing the Communists far ahead with more than 760,000 votes of 1.556 million cast in the country wedged between Ukraine and European Union member Romania.

Ciocan gave no percentages of the vote for each party.
