International observers were physically unable to register mass irregularities in the second round of the presidential election in Ukraine and this is the reason why the BYT disagrees with their conclusions that the election was held democratically.
International observers were physically unable to register mass irregularities in the second round of the presidential election in Ukraine and this is the reason why the BYT disagrees with their conclusions that the election was held democratically, the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko (BYT) has stated.
"We don't understand the conclusions of international observers that the election was held fairly and democratically," the bloc's official Web site quoted Serhiy Paskhalov, the head of presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko's main campaign office in Dnipropetrovsk, as saying.
Paskhalov said that only six foreign observers had monitored the run-off presidential election at 469 polling stations in six electoral districts in Dnipropetrovsk region.
