-- A landslide victory for Giorgi Margvelashvili. With 70 percent of ballots counted, Margvelashvili has taken 62 percent of the vote, while Davit Bakradze has won 22 percent and Nino Burjanadze has earned 10.
-- Voter turnout was 46.6 percent -- a steep drop, compared to parliamentary elections last year, when 60.8 percent of eligible voters cast ballots. There were some 3.5 million eligible voters.
-- There were 23 candidates standing in today's poll, but most attention focused on three candidates: Giorgi Margvelashvili, representing the Georgian Dream coalition and handpicked by Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili; Davit Bakradze, a member of President Mikhail Saakashvili's United National Movement (UNM); and Nino Burjanadze, the leader of the Democratic Movement-United Georgia party.
-- Consitutional reforms, which concentrate most power in the hands of the prime minister, will take effect following today's vote. Ivanishvili has said he will retire by the end of this year, but has not said whom he will appoint as his successor.
