Seventeen percent of voters would have voted against everybody at the parliamentary elections on October 28, if such option had been in the election ballots, according to the results of a public opinion poll of Ukrainian citizens conducted by Research & Branding Group Company.

"17% is a large figure," founder of Research & Branding Group Yevhen Kopatko said at a press conference hosted by Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday.

According to him, 76% of the respondents would not vote against everybody, and 7% found it difficult to answer.

The poll was conducted from November 6-16 in 24 regions of Ukraine, Crimea, Kyiv and Sevastopol, with 2,076 people being polled. The poll's margin of error is +/- 2.2%.
