Former security chief Alexander I. Lebed finished first in the race for governor of a Siberian region but failed to win enough votes to avoid a runoff against the incumbent. Lebed hopes that a win in the gubernatorial race in Krasnoyarsk will serve as a steppingstone to the presidency. With 98% of the votes counted, Lebed was leading Gov. Valery Zubov by 45% to 36%. A Communist candidate was a distant third. A runoff in which Lebed is favored will be held May 17.
