Comedian Zelensky wins Ukraine presidency by landslide - Exit polls
2019-04-21 22:23:14

Ukrainian comedian Volodymyr Zelensky has won a run-off election to become the country's next president by a landslide, exit polls suggest.

The polls give him more than 70% support. He dominated the first round of voting three weeks ago when 39 candidates were on the ticket.

"I will never let you down," Mr Zelensky told supporters on Sunday.

He added: "While I am not formally president yet, as a citizen of Ukraine I can tell all post-Soviet countries: 'Look at us! Everything is possible!'"

Incumbent President Petro Poroshenko  admitted the defeat but told supporters in Kiev that he will not leave politics.
