KIEV, October 28. /TASS/. About 1.5 million Ukrainian nationals, who were staying in countries of the European Union on Sunday, failed to take part in Ukraine’s early parliamentary election, the UNN news agency quotes the head of the Ukraine Voters Committee, Alexei Koshel, as saying.
“This has been a traditional problem over the past 10 to 15 years,” Koshel said, adding it could be solved through a bigger number of polling stations or a possibility to vote by post.
This year, 112 polling stations were opened outside Ukraine, at Ukrainian embassies and consulates in 72 countries. Six polling stations were opened in Russia, five in Germany, four in Poland and the same number in Italy and the United States.
According to Ukrainian Central Election Commission’s early results, Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front came first with 21.58% of the vote, followed by The Petro Poroshenko Bloc with 21.41% of the vote. Samopomich (Self Help) led by Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy, comes third with 11.16%.
