The Commission has processed protocols from all districts of the city except Halytskyi one. Although, according to the head of the election committee, acting mayor of Lviv Andrii Sadovyi has not been able to win more than half of the votes there.
"We are waiting for just one more protocol from the territorial election committee of Halytskyi district. They had got no power there all day long so there was no technical possibility to submit it. But I spoke to the chairman of the commission and found out that the leader of the race Andrii Sadovyi has received a little less than 49 percent there. Therefore, we can safely say that there will be a second round," election committee head Ihor Slipetskyi said.
The counting of received protocols shows that Sadovyi has received 49.22 percent (131,426 votes of Lviv residents); the next is Svoboda candidate Ruslan Koshulynskyi with 12.29 percent (32,811 votes); the third is Hromadianska Pozytsia candidate Volodymyr Hirniak winning 11.08 percent (29,595 votes); the fourth in the race is Verkhovna Rada deputy and leader of Narodnyi Kontrol Dmytro Dobrodomov with 10.74 percent (28,697 votes); the fifth - Petro Poroshenko Bloc candidate Oksana Yurynets supported by 4.33 percent (11,576 votes).
Lviv Mayor Andrii Sadovyi has already declared readiness for the second round of election for the position of mayor. "When the final results are announced, I will accept them as they are. I will not allow any confrontation in the city. I am ready for the second round of election."
The second round of mayoral election in Lviv will be held Nov. 15.
