With just under 2% left to count (98.08% reporting), the Party of Communists (PCRM) has 49.96% of the vote, with the PL (12.78%), PLDM (12.26%), and ALM (9.81%) trailing far behind. With roughly 15% of the vote wasted on parties failing to pass the 6% barrier, the PCRM will secure a majority in parliament. While the exit polls indicated a lower tally for the PCRM, it is likely within the margin of error (which was not reported). Hopefully, the CEC will release data aggregated at a lower level to facilitate more extensive analysis of the results.
