Election campaign gathers pace in Ukraine

Representatives
from 87 political parties are running for parliamentary seats in majority
constituencies, whilst 22 political parties will compete under party lists. In
some majority constituencies the competition is as high as 30-40 candidates for
one deputy seat. Unfortunately around half of them are suspected of being dummy
candidates.

According
to reports from the Ukrainian media about 10 thousand foreign observers are
expected to arrive in Ukraine. The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and
Human Rights is launching its international observation mission in early
September. Some 100 long term observers from OSCE member states will arrive in
Ukraine starting from the middle of September, followed by 600 short-term
observers who will arrive a week before the elections to monitor the election
process at voting stations.
