Polls Give Opposition Leader Victory in Ukraine's Vote

Vote in Ukraine's repeat presidential run-off ended while several separate exit polls showed that opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko won the decisive contest.

The poll conducted by Ukrainian Institute of Social Research and Social Monitoring Center shows Yushchenko scored 56.5 percent in the exit poll to 41.3 percent for Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich.

A second poll, conducted by Razumkov center, gave 56.5 percent for Yushchenko and 41.3 percent for Yanukovych.

The initial results from Ukraine's Central Election Commission (CEC) will be announced on Monday.

Sunday's re-election took place after the Supreme Court annulled the Nov. 21 election result over widespread vote fraud with Yanukovych's victory stripped.

In a press conference held late Sunday, Yanukovych told journalists if he loses the race, he will become the opposition.

Some 32,118 polling stations across Ukraine opened at 8:00 AM local time (06:00 GMT) for voters to cast their ballots and closed at 8:00 PM (18:00 GMT).

Ukraine's Interior Ministry said that they had registered no incidents or serious crimes in the revote.
