KIEV, October 27. /TASS/. Representatives of Ukrainian far right movement Right Sector have blocked the 96th district election committee in the town of Vyshgorod in country’s capital Kiev region at early election in the country’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada. A scuffle has sparked up between radicals and members of the election committee, regional police told TASS on Monday.
Police said that Right Sector radicals “sought to prevent chiefs of district election committees from delivering ballot papers to a district election committee in the 96th election constituency at early parliamentary election.” “Now the situation got back on the normal track,” Kiev regional police said with confidence.
Meanwhile, the press service of candidate Yaroslav Moskalenko said that “In a brawl ballot boxes were broken and ballot papers are lying under feet.” Police have placed around 20 policemen with assault rifles, but the entrances to the polling station are still blocked.
The 96th election constituency includes towns of Bucha and Slavutich and four districts. This constituency went down in the 2014 parliamentary election campaign history as a constituency with the longest ballot paper. The Central Elections Commission (CEC) has registered 50 candidates in this constituency, setting the absolute record of these and previous parliamentary elections, when the longest ballot included 49 candidates. From 50 candidates 12 are nominated from political parties and 38 are self-nominees.
According to CEC reports, current Rada lawmaker and non-partisan self-nominee Yaroslav Moskalenko wins with a large margin in the constituency, a candidate from the Right Sector party has gained just the ninth place. At previous election Moskalenko ran from the Party of Regions and won election in this constituency.
