High voter turnout upsets UNDP primary, making outcome of Sunday’s final round of voting hard to predict

Former Gyeonggi Governer Sohn Hak-gyu won the second round of mobile voting in the government-affiliated United New Democratic Party’s primary yesterday.

Former Prime Minister Lee Hae-chan was third in the overall tally.

In the second round of mobile voting, in which citizens have been invited to use their mobile phones to cast their votes, Sohn garnered 21,359 votes of the total 56,211, accounting for 38.4 percent of the total, while Chung received 19,288 votes, or 34.6 percent, and Lee, 15,036 votes, or 27 percent.
