Liberal candidate Moon Jae-in has claimed victory in South Korea's presidential election.
Axar.az reports citing to BBC Mr Moon favours greater dialogue with North Korea, in a change to current South Korean policy.
"I will be president for all South Koreans," he told cheering supporters in Gwanghwamun Square in the capital Seoul.
The early election was called after a corruption scandal led to the impeachment of the former president.
Official results have yet to be released.
An exit poll conducted jointly by three network TV stations had put him on course to get 41.4% of the vote, with his nearest challenger, conservative Hong Joon-Pyo, on 23.3%.
