Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov win elections

Turkmen President Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov has secured a third term in office by winning 97.69 percent of the vote in Sunday’s election, the Central Election Commission said on Monday.
Turkmenistan to the polls on Sunday for a presidential vote expected to further tighten the incumbent leader’s hold over the gas-rich Central Asian country.
Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, 59, faces eight other candidates including subordinate regional officials, the director of a government-owned oil refinery and a representative of the country’s state agribusiness complex.”The opposition candidates are fairly irrelevant to the extent that people have been recruited from within the regime or the government departments, they are just a facade to show that the recoronation of the president ends up successfully,” Luca Ancheski, a specialist on Turkmenistan at the University of Glasgow.
Voting in the country of over five million people began at 7:00am (02:00 GMT) and will continue until polling stations close at 7:00pm (14:00 GMT), the central electoral commission confirmed.
