With an astounding 83.7%, Dimitar Nikolov has been reelected for a third term in the Black Sea port city of Burgas as Bulgaria is holding local elections on Sunday, an Alpha Research poll suggests. 

A survey by rival Gallup agency puts support for Nikolov at 83.5%.

Nikolov, as in the previous (2011) vote, was backed by the main ruling GERB party of PM Boyko Borisov. 

His result was followed by the candidate of nationalist NFSB (part of the Patriotic Front coalition that backs the government) at 5.6%, with the socialist BSP candidate having mustered 5.5%. Far-right Ataka party garnered just 1.5% of the ballots.
