Ukraine – Parliamentary election

Kyiv Post has provided the provisional result of the Ukrainian parliamentary election. The figures are based on over 97% of the votes cast. So, they are likely to change very little. Here are the figures;

  • Party of Regions, 30.25%, 188 seats
  • Batkivshchyna (the Tymoshenko opposition bloc), 25.35%, 104 seats
  • Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform Vitaliy Klychko (pro-European), 13.85%, 40 seats
  • Communists, 13.28%, 32 seats
  • All-Ukrainian Union “Svoboda” (nationalist), 10.34%, 36 seats
  • Independents, 43 seats
  • Others, 7 seats

So, President Viktor Yanukovych’s Party of the Regions has emerged as the largest group. If it were to go into government with the Communists, then they would have a majority.
