Opposition politicians have decried numerous violations in the Oct. 28 parliamentary election, but were still deciding their options and positions as of Nov. 8. The CEC and parliament said new elections should be held in five contested single-mandate districts, but many in the opposition are opposing this solution. Meanwhile, Klitschko is seeking a new national election because he alleges falsification took place nationwide.
