The law on parliamentary elections in Ukraine's adopted by the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday evening, takes into account demands of the opposition and won't allow the election fraud in 2012, the Front for Change Party Leader and member of the Our Ukraine-People's Self-Defense faction Arseniy Yatseniuk said.
"This is the victory of the opposition. The opposition's demands were clearly formulated and we managed to have these demands met. The majority wanted to adopt the law, which would steal the votes of electors, as it was during the local elections. We didn't allow this law to be passed and [thus prevented] election fraud. According to this law, the opposition will win the parliamentary elections in 2012," Yatseniuk's press service quoted the lawmaker as saying on Thursday.
"Through adopting this law we have shown that the opposition can win and can make the authorities reckon with our demands," he stressed.
