KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Full preliminary results show TV comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy won Ukraine's presidential election with 73% of the vote.

The Ukrainian Central Election Commission on Tuesday published the full and final count of votes in Sunday's election which also showed incumbent Petro Poroshenko with only 24%.

Zelenskiy, 41, is a political novice who is promising to build a "new country," free of graft and the old, corrupt political establishment.

Zelenskiy's campaign was extremely vague, leaving pundits wondering how he is going to tackle thorny issues like the separatist movement in eastern Ukraine and relations with Russia which annexed Ukraine's Crimean peninsula in 2014.
