MOSCOW, October 26 /TASS/. Ukraine’s local elections held on October 25 hit a record by the number of violations. They also brought the country back to feudalism, Mykola Azarov, Ukraine’s former prime minister, said in an interview with LifeNews television channel on Monday.
"I do not remember anything like that in my living memory…Honestly, they did not even manage to organize the election rigging to make these polls look more or less decent," Azarov said noting that the Ukrainian Electoral Commission had inflated the turnout almost by half to 46% and a split had occurred in the ruling coalition.
"Instead of federalization of which we had talked so much we have found ourselves on the verge of miserable feudalization when every region had been placed in the hands of certain feudal lords who organized the elections," Azarov stressed.
Elections to Ukraine’s local self-government bodies took place on October 25. The polling stations never opened in the cities of Mariupol and Krasnoarmeisk, eastern Ukraine, because of problems with voting bulletins. Now, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) will have to amend the legislation to enable the two cities to hold a revote on the day when the second round of elections takes place in the rest of Ukraine.
