The Our Ukraine party has condemned the adoption of the law on parliamentary elections in Ukraine, which in their opinion will prevent the holding of fair elections.
"The adoption of the law on the election of people's deputies under a mixed system minimizes the chance for holding fair elections in the country, and is the implementation of a scenario to preserve the current rule of the Regions Party … We strongly condemn the vote for this bill by 62 MPs of the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko faction and 36 MPs of the Our Ukraine-People's Self-Defense faction," the party said in a statement issues on Friday.
The party believes that there was a "conspiracy in the parliament by the ruling majority and the so-called main opposition parties - the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko and Arseniy Yatseniuk's Front for Change."
"Nome of the lawmakers of the Our Ukraine party voted for this anti-democratic electoral law," the statement reads.
