Sergei Sobyanin is the new Moscow mayor

Former presidential aide and interim mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin emerged successful in his bid to become Moscow's mayor in an election just conducted.
Sobyanin ran against a blogger and anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny. The latter has been convicted for embezzlement but still went to take the race of mayoralty while on bail.
As of preliminary data, the votes tally had it 51.37 percent for Sobyanin while Navalny got 27.24.

With strong beliefs that something went wrong with the votes counting, Navalny demanded a re-count.
