KIEV, October 26 /TASS/. Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc is winning the October 25 elections to local self-government bodies in 17 Ukrainian regions, according to preliminary vote count, the party said on its official website on Monday.
The Opposition Bloc won an absolute and indisputable victory in Ukraine’s southeastern provinces - the Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Kirovograd, Luhansk, Nikolayev and Odessa regions.
Despite provocations and the authorities’ efforts to debar the Opposition Bloc from the local elections, the political party won 15% of the votes in the Kharkov region.
The Opposition Bloc gained 8.3% in the Zhitomir region; more than 6% in the Poltava and Sumy regions. The party passed a 5% election threshold in the Vinnitsa, Kiev, Poltava, Cherkassy and Chernigov regions.
Opposition Bloc candidates to the mayors of Slavyansk and Lisichansk scored unconditional victories in the first round [51.7% and 52.4%, respectively]. The party’s mayoral candidates will take part in the runoff elections in the cities of Dnepropetrovsk, Krivoi Rog, Kramatorsk, Zaporozhye and Nikolayev.
The Opposition Bloc has pledged to continue fighting for seats in the Kiev City Council. According to a parallel vote count, the party got the necessary support from Kiev voters but the results were distorted due to election rigging at a number of polling stations.
