YEREVAN, February 25 (RIA Novosti) - Incumbent Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan won the February 18 presidential election in the South Caucasus country, according to the final vote count from all 1,988 polling stations announced by Armenia’s Central Election Commission (CEC), CEC chief Tigran Mukuchyan said Monday.

“Sargsyan collected 861,373 votes, which totals 58.64 percent,” Mukuchyan said.

US-born former Foreign Minister Raffi Hovhannisyan came in second, with 539,693 or 36.74 percent of the vote.

The remaining five candidates garnered less than three percent of the votes each.

Voter turnout totaled 60.18 percent, or 1,521,489 registered voters.

International observers said the Armenian election was generally well-administered, with fundamental freedoms respected, but noted that some key concerns remain, including “a lack of impartiality on the part of the public administration and the misuse of administrative resources.”
