The new convocation of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, probably, will not be able to start work until September 1 due to judicial processes that do not allow to declare the election results. This was during the briefing said the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Bogdan. Recording of his speech is available on YouTube.
“It depends on a large number of trials, which do not allow the CEC to form the final version of the composition of the Verkhovna Rada ahead of us,” said Bogdan.
Extraordinary elections to the Parliament of Ukraine took place on July 21. The party of President Vladimir Zelensky “servant of the people” has received record-breaking support for all history of independent Ukraine — of 43.16 percent of the vote. Thus, political power has won a parliamentary majority alone. Second place went to “the Opposition platform For life” (13.05 percent). Also in the top five included “Batkivshchyna” (8.18 percent), “European solidarity” (8.1 percent) and “the Voice” (5.82 percent).
The total turnout amounted to 49.84 per cent. The vote was held under a mixed system — 251 candidate will enter Parliament on party lists and 199 MPs will be elected in single-mandate constituencies. In the elections involved 24 parties and 3220 of candidates in single-mandate constituencies. By law, the official election results will be announced by the CEC of Ukraine until August 5.
