MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. A polling station for the Ukrainian parliamentary election voting opened in Moscow on Sunday. “The voting procedure is passing calmly,” head of the district election commission Viktor Przhov told TASS.
“It’s difficult to guess how many Ukrainian citizens will come to us, but the more the better,” he said.
The voter is required to produce a Ukrainian passport - internal, foreign diplomatic or service passport. Other district election commissions in Russia are working in Rostov-on-Don (at the Consulate General), in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Novosibirsk.
A total of 6,436 candidates are running for seats in the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) of Ukraine.
Under the law, 50% of deputies are elected by party lists and 50% - in single-mandate constituencies.
As many as 3,114 candidates from 29 parties are running for 255 deputy mandates; 3,322 candidates (2,019 self-nominees and 1,303 nominated by parties are registered in single-mandate constituencies.
At the previous parliamentary elections in 2012 also 225 majority deputies were elected.
However, head of the Ukrainian Central Election Commission (CEC) Mikhail Okhendovsky said that this year the elections will not be held in a number of election districts in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. In 2012, the Verkhovna Rada elections were also held in two districts of Sevastopol and in 10 districts of Crimea.
Thus, the number of majority deputies this time is expected not to exceed 198, that is, 27 seats will remain vacant.
