(ANSA) - BELGRADE, NOV 7 - Vassil Terziev, a tech entrepreneur and start-up investor, has been elected as Sofia's new mayor, ending the conservative GERB party's 18-year reign, according to run-off results released by the Central Election Committee on Monday, as reported by Balkan Insight. "Thank you for looking up and seeing Sofia through hope's eyes," Terziev said on social media. Terziev received 48.2% of the vote. Vanya Grigorova, a left-wing worker's rights and pro-Russian activist, came in second place with 46.9 percent. Only 34.2 per cent of Sofia voters cast ballots. (ANSA).
