KIEV, September 30. /ITAR-TASS/. A candidate registration campaign for Ukrainian parliamentary elections is about to end on Tuesday. September 30 is the last day to make election lists for the vote due on October 26.
Early parliamentary polls have many intrigues: the Communists may not be elected in Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, for the first time, election of nationalistic party Svoboda (Freedom) which are staunch Communist opponents, is largely in question.
The president’s party under a new name Petro Poroshenko’s bloc remains the absolute leader of the parliamentary race. According to sociological surveys, this bloc may gain 39% of votes. Five rightwing political unions and center-leftist party Strong Ukraine are expected to clear the five-percent election hurdle.
Ukrainian Central Elections Commission (CEC) has already received first documents from international observers to monitor elections. They are 50 experts of ENEMO, international network of non-governmental organizations.
Election results should be officially announced by November 10.
