The government is interested in holding transparent parliamentary elections in order to increase public confidence in the government and continue the reforms, Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov has said at a meeting with Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jan Tombinski.
“I think that the elections will be fine. This is a very important
stage for us, since the country needs further reforms and holding
reforms without the public confidence is very difficult, so we need to
get a vote of confidence,” the press service of the Ukrainian government
quoted Azarov as saying.
The prime minister assured the ambassador that Ukraine will create
open and democratic conditions for all participants of the electoral
process. Azarov said that all the polling stations in Ukraine were
equipped with Web cameras, so that everyone would be able to see the
election process. “We are doing everything to ensure free and democratic
elections,” the head of the government said.
In turn Tombinski noted that about 5,000 international observers
would arrive in Ukraine to monitor the parliament election. “We see the
government’s efforts to hold the elections in the most transparent way,”
The parliamentary elections in Ukraine are scheduled for October 28, 2012.
