De Blasio Wins New York City Mayoral Election

NEW YORK – Democrat Bill de Blasio, considered representative of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, won the New York City mayoral election, according to vote projections of local media and partial results released Tuesday night.

If de Blasio’s victory is confirmed with the final official result, he will continue to be the mayor of the largest city in the United States for four more years.

Vote projections broadcast by the media half an hour after the polls closed indicate that the Democratic candidate won a clear victory at the polls against his most important rival, the Republican Nicole Malliotakis.

According to the partial and provisional vote count, with 72 percent of the polling stations counted, de Blasio had so far won 65 percent of the votes and Malliotakis 30 percent. The remaining votes were distributed among five other candidates.

De Blasio, 56, stood out as a clear favorite in Tuesday’s local elections, according to previous polls, which gave him support similar to the partial results that are currently being confirmed.

The re-elected mayor is expected to hold a press conference on Wednesday at 1:00 pm local time (1800 GMT), according to his office’s announcement, made shortly after media projections announced his victory.

With this triumph, De Blasio will become the first Democrat to be re-elected as New York City mayor since the beginning of the 1980s.

De Blasio won his first victory in the mayoral elections in 2013, ending two decades of the Republicans’ municipal administration, those of Rudolph Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg.
