Only 48
percent of Ukrainians said they know that the Oct. 28 contest involves election
of half of the 450-seat parliament through contests in single-mandate
districts. Findings of the poll were made public on Sept. 11.

“This is
disturbing, because the [single-mandate part of the vote] will be the decisive
part of the fall election,” said Iryna Bekeshkina, director of the Kyiv-based
Democratic Initiatives Foundation.

The poll,
conducted in mid-August by Bekeshkina’s non-governmental organization and the
Razumkov Center, showed that other 29 and 23 percent of respondents know little
or nothing about single-mandate contests.
