KIEV, May 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s newly elected President Petro Poroshenko will be sworn into office on June 7, Ukrainian media reported on Thursday.
In line with the Ukrainian constitution, the president elect takes his oath of office within five days after the official announcement of the polling results, or when these results are published in the newspapers The Voice of Ukraine and Uryadovoi Kurier (Governmental Courier). The day when the Central Election Commission makes public the election results is not considered as the day of the official announcement of voting results.
On Wednesday, Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov signed a decree establishing an organizational committee for the inauguration of the new president. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry was commissioned to send invitations to the ceremony to foreign delegations. The committee includes officials from the presidential administration, lawmakers, representatives from Ukraine’s foreign and interior ministries and other government agencies.
Early presidential elections in Ukraine were held on May 25. According to the Ukrainian Central Election Commission, Poroshenko won 54.7% of the vote.
