KIEV, October 26. /TASS/. Ukraine’s political association Samopomoshch led by Mayor of Lviv Andrei Sadovy is leading the parliamentary polls in the capital city Kiev, having outstripped the national leader Petro Poroshenko Bloc, Alexei Antipovich, the head of the Rating sociological company, told the Shuster live television program on Sunday, citing results of the exit poll conducted by his company.

Samopomoshch won 27% votes in Kiev, while the Petro Poroshenko Bloc scored 21%, and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front won 17%, Antipovich said.

According to the results of the national and international exit polls and a poll conducted by the Inter television channel, the Petro Poroshenko Bloc is winning from 22 to 23% of the vote. It is followed by Yatesnyuk’s and Turchynov’s People’s Front with 19.7-21.8% Next are Samopomoshch led by Mayor of Lviv Andrei Sadovy (11-14.2%), Yuri Boiko’s Opposition Bloc (7/8-9.9%), Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party (about 6.5%), Oleh Tyahnybok’s Svoboda (5.8-6.3%), and Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna (5.6%).

Other parties, including the radical Right Sector and the Communist Party of Ukraine, have failed to overcome the five-percent barriers to win seats in the parliament.

Samopomoshch’s third result was a surprise for experts who thought it would not be able to score at least five percent of votes.
