On Oct. 28, a new set of rules will govern how 450 candidates get elected to the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament.
Voters will cast their votes using two separate ballots. And it’ll be an election bonanza with more than 9 candidates wishing to run for every seat in the legislature.
One ballot will have a list of parties that will compete through a proportional system to take 225 seats in the Rada. The Central Election Commission said that 22 political parties have submitted party lists, 12 of which it had registered as of Aug. 15.
