You're reading: Ukraine opposition protests election results

  Ukrainian opposition leaders are refusing to accept the official final results of the national parliamentary election.

The
Central Elections Common quietly posted final results for 445 of the
parliament’s 450 seats over the weekend. They showed that President
Viktor Yanukovych’s party and allied parties will control a majority of
seats.

The commission said vote-counting for five seats had been unlawful and those races must be rerun.

The opposition insists it won those five seats.

Arseniy
Yatsenyuk, a leader of the main opposition party, said Monday that the
opposition does not recognize the results and will challenge them in
local and international courts.

It was unclear whether opposition
members who won other seats would begin work in the new parliament set
to convene in mid-December.
