KIEV, August 30,/ITAR-TASS/. To hold early parliamentary elections Ukraine will have to spend 980.88 million hryvnias (about 73 million dollars), the chief of the Central Election Commission, Mikhail Okhendovsky said on Friday. He hopes the government will identify the sources where the money may come from without delay.
Part of the funds (4.48 million hryvnias) is absolutely essential to update the national automated vote-counting system.
Okhendovsky believes that the Ministry of Finance will have to either draft a bill on amendments to the 2014 budget or provide financing from the reserve fund.
