Polls closed at 19:00hrs in the first ballot for the selection of the Mayor and council positions.
Looked a very busy poll earlier.
The count is being undertaken at the school where we voted earlier.
21:15 Dimitris Prebanzanos doing very well at the initial count.
21:20 Reports that the popular vote is spread amongst the other five candidates
21:32 Reports Prebanzanos leading, Paschalis and Patsas very close for second place.
The top two candidates will go head to head next Sunday ...
21:37 Supporters optimistic at, Pascalis campaign office.
21:45 Reports Prebanzanos will go through to week 2
Prebanzanos is 70 years young, he seemed quite relaxed earlier ...
Seems the number of candidates has split the vote. Lots of horse trading to come this week.
22:00 Still awaiting official result ...
Much anticipation , must be a few nerves jangling over the result.
22:04 Filaretto said to have a good number of votes, a three way race for second place ?
22:19 Prebanzanos has 300+ votes over second place Patsas at the moment
22:30 Pascalis campaign office very dissapointed
22:45 Am in Patsas office looking at the results live on the link, he is wearing a very broad smile
Result is Prebanzanos 1st
Around 60 votes difference ...
Yannis Patsas checking the numbers at his campaign HQ, as the votes for the councillors come in ...
