KIEV, November 2 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s parties Batkivshchyna and UDAR demanded the country’s President Viktor Yanukovich interfere in the situation in certain electoral districts, where, the opposition claims, results of the parliamentary elections are being falsified.
“We believe it inappropriate that the Berkut police units interfere with the process of stating the elections’ results. Ukrainian Interior Minister is appointed by the President, thus he should be responsible for the order during the election process,” the opposition said. It is a glaring fact, there the Berkut units are called to the election commission in Pervomaisk’s elections commission in the Nikolayevsk region, there they load protocols into a bus, beat up people and release tear gas onto them.
The Ukrainian opposition registered on Friday with the country’s parliament a bill on falsifying of election results. “On November 6, the Verkhovna Rada /parliament/ should start working will a discussion about a statement from united opposition about falsifying of the elections’ results,” Head of the opposition’s Council Arseniy Yatsenouk said. “Our statement includes clearly not only the election stations, but also names of members of local elections commissions, members of the local election commissions, chairpersons of regional state administrations and staff of the interior forces, as well as names of judges, who made incorrect decisions, which contradict the legislation and the Constitution,” he said.
The opposition fixed in the statement its demands to the prosecution, to Ukraine’s Security Service and to the Interior Ministry to start investigation of the mentioned facts, he said. “We shall demand dismissal of the judges, bringing to criminal responsibilities of chairpersons of regional state administrations, heads of police stations in those regions, of heads of the security service and those people at regional commissions, who for money, via bribery, via pressure eliminated ballots, protocols and who eliminated the will of the Ukrainian people,” Yatsenouk said, adding that the Central Elections Commission on Friday had accepted his statement on violations during calculations of the vote.
Chairman of UDAR Vitaly Klichko said on Friday that if manipulations with calculations of the vote continue, the party may recognise the elections as invalid. “If the manipulations continue, we shall be doing everything to make these elections recognised as invalid,” he said. “There were many violations, and UDAR has many confirmations of this information.”
