Comedian takes lead in Ukraine's Presidential elections


A comedian with no political experience has won the most votes in the first round of Ukraine’s presidential elections.
Volodymyr Zelenskiy who played the president on TV received 30 point four of the vote, with current leader Petro Poroshenko second on 17 point eight percent.
The two, who have expressed largely pro-EU opinions, are set to take part in a run-off election next month.
Ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko appears to have been eliminated on a projected 14 point two percent vote.
Mr Poroshenko has described his forecast second place as a “harsh lesson”.
