You're reading: Foreign Ministry: All remarks by international observers to be taken into account

International observers, in their preliminary findings on the parliamentary elections in Ukraine, have noted a number of flaws in the organization and holding of the elections, and all of these remarks will be taken into account, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has reported.

“International observers, in their preliminary findings, have noted a
number of shortcomings during the organization and holding of the
elections. All of the remarks will be carefully analyzed, and the flaws
detected will be taken into account in further work on improving
electoral legislation and practice,” the ministry said in a statement on
Monday.

The ministry said that international observers had noted the creation
of a proper legal framework for the holding of democratic elections,
the general nature of the electoral process, the opportunity for voters
to choose between different parties, and a calm and peaceful voting
process.

“Most international observers positively assessed the voting process
and the counting of the votes. Thus, the international community
recognizes that the future composition of the Verkhovna Rada reflects
the will of the Ukrainian people, and the traditions of competitive
democracy and parliamentarianism are strengthening in Ukraine,” reads
the statement.

“The voting results help us say with confidence that the basic
principles of Ukraine’s domestic and foreign policy will remain
unchanged. The election of the new composition of the Verkhovna Rada of
Ukraine is creating favorable conditions for enhancing democratic and
economic reforms initiated by President Viktor Yanukovych and continuing
the strategic course for European integration,” the ministry said.
