Candidate for Ukrainian president and Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has said that the current popularity ratings of her opponent, Regions Party leader Victor Yanukovych, have been groundlessly overrated, and added that she would not allow the election results to be rigged. "We won't allow him to rig the election once again, covering himself with false ratings that are completely unconfirmed," she said in the village of Bobrovytsia in Chernihiv region on Thursday.

Tymoshenko said that her political bloc would prevent those not included in the electoral roll and without any confirmed addresses from voting at the election. She said that each voter would be able to vote at only one polling station.
