You're reading: Representatives of Udar and Svoboda parties not included in constituency commissions

No representative of the Udar Party of Vitali Klitschko and the Svoboda All-Ukrainian Union will be included in any 225 constituency commission.

This comes from the results of a drawing procedure conducted at a meeting of the Central Election Commission (CEC) on Friday.

CEC Chairman Volodymyr Shapoval reminded that the constituency commission includes at least 12 members, but no more than 18 members.

The commissions are to include candidates of five parliamentary factions. He said that all of the five factions submitted 225 candidates each and all of them are included in constituency commissions.

A total of 81 parties out of 87 parties which nominated their candidates used their right to nominate candidates for constituency commission members. They submitted nominations for 13,536 candidates, and 112 of them were rejected due to the inconsistencies of their documents to Ukrainian law.

Thus, 13,424 aspired to 2,926 vacant positions in the constituency commissions.

After the drawing procedure, 19 parties got the right to be included in the constituency commissions.

The parliamentary election is to be held in Ukraine in October 2012.
