KIEV, December 15, 23:34 /ITAR-TASS/. No breach of public order was registered in Ukraine’s re-run parliamentary elections on Sunday, the press service of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said.
It reported, however, several violations. In one of the developments, members of one of the district election commissions received sms messages with threats. Police looks into the incident. Besides, one of the candidates turned to law enforcement agencies to complain about illegal campaigning on the day of the election. At one of the polling stations observers saw a woman trying to take a ballot paper out of the polling station.
The elections were held in five ‘problem’ election constituencies, including the city of Obukhov, Kiev Region, Pervomaisk, Nikolayev Region, Cherkassy and Kanev, Cherkassy Region and an election district in the Ukrainian capital.
These constituencies are named problem because the country’s Central Elections Commission failed to decide on the winners in these election constituencies due to a large number of violations during the voting and vote count at the country’s parliamentary elections in October 2012.
A total of 385 international observers monitored the voting.
