 NEWS ITEM: One of the trends of the Oct. 28 election campaign is an abundance of the so-called “clones” running for parliament, people with the same name running in the same district. This tactic is designed by rivals to draw votes from the strongest candidate by the same name. There are 31 constituencies where such candidates are registered, according to OPORA watchdog. The greatest number of clones – three each – is registered in four constituencies: three Volkovs in #80, three Boykos in #98, three Kozaks in #122, and three Parkhomenkos in #225.
