As none of the candidates was able to achieve a majority on 30 October 2016, a second round of voting took place on 13 November 2016 between the two leading candidates: Igor Dodon of PSRM and Maia Sandu of PAS. Preliminary reports indicate that Igor Dodon won the second round, and with it, the presidency (52.18% according to the official results).

Dodon is pro – russian leader and his win would mean loss of trust in pro-European leaders in the ex-Soviet state of 3.5 million, which was plunged into political and economic crisis after a corruption scandal came to light in late 2014.  "I am president for the whole country, for those who voted for me and those who voted against," Dodon said in a short briefing to journalists.
