KIEV, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, or parliament, on Tuesday registered a bill on rerun elections in one-seat constituencies. The bill was initiated by Alexander Kozub of the Party of Regions faction, who proposed corresponding amendments to the national law on parliamentary elections.
Neither the text of the bill nor accompanying documents are yet available on the Verkhovna Rada’s official website. It is only reported that the bill had been “submitted to the committee consideration.”
On Sunday, Ukraine’s Central Election Commission drew official results of the parliamentary elections of October 28.
A total of 445 lawmakers were elected by party tickets and in one-seat constituencies. The ruling Party of Regions won 185 seats, the opposition party Batkivshchina won 101 seats, the party UDAR led by boxing champion Vitaly Klichko won 40 seats, the Freedon party – 37 seats, the Communist Party – 32 seats, the United Centre party – three seats, the People’s Party – two seats, the party Union – one seats, and Oleg Lyashko’s Radical Party – one seats. Self-nominees won forty-three seats.
However, the Central Elections Committee failed to count votes in five one-seat constituencies and the Verkhovna Rada recommended to appoint rerun elections there.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said a criminal case had been opened over vote rigging at election constituency 223. It was established that more than 400 ballot papers had been deliberately damaged while counting.
