KIEV, October 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The voting at the Ukrainian parliamentary elections on Sunday “is being held normally, without any violations,” leader of the ruling Party of Regions and Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said after his voting at a polling station on Sunday.
The turnout is quite high, Azarov said. “I came to vote a little bit later, because there was some information, at the present moment I can say that the elections are being held absolutely normally. No violations were reported anywhere. The election monitoring system is functioning well, without any breakdowns so far,” Azarov said.
Before getting in the ballot booth the prime minister took an attentive look at the polling station and asked to show the web cameras to him that was done.
The Ukrainian Central Elections Commission reported that the turnout at the Ukrainian parliamentary elections reached 22.43% by the Sunday noon local time (14:00 Moscow time). The reports about the turnout came from 62 election constituencies out of 225 constituencies.
The turnout reached 25% by 12:00 local time in the Crimea. Meanwhile, the highest turnout was reported in Armyansk (32%) and Sudak (28%).
