KIEV, October 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said the October 28 parliamentary elections in the country showed the measure of its people’s responsibility.
He said observers had assessed the voting process positively.
“I congratulate the people of Ukraine on an important step in the development of a free, independent and democratic state,” the presidential press service quoted Yanukovich as saying.
He noted that on the whole the voting and voting counting in the country went “in a peaceful and organised manner and showed the measure of the Ukrainian people’s responsibility and wisdom to the whole world”.
“I am glad that according to preliminary estimates by many Ukrainian and international observers, including the OSCE, the elections went well from the technical point of view. Voters had a broad selection of candidates to choose from. And the voting process was assessed by observers positively,” the president said.
He said Ukraine would work with the international community in order to solve the problems reported by observers and make the next elections even more democratic.
