tsakhia eleMongolian President Tsakhia Elbegdorj won a second term, according to today's preliminary results, defeating a wrestling champion and the country's first woman presidential contender in an election dominated by a debate over mining wealth.

The incumbent gained 50.23 per cent of votes, Mongolia's General Elections Commission chief Sodnomtseren Choinzon said, after announcing that all ballots had been counted.

The result comes after election officials in Ulan Bator received information from all of Mongolia's 1,896 polling stations and from counters for overseas voters, but they would not be classed as official until the ballot papers were counted again on delivery to the capital, Choinzon said.
