Klychko mentioned that the way the election committees had been formed posed a specific threat to the democratic elections. He stressed, “We have evidence that some precincts consist of almost 100% ruling party representatives. In addition, members of technical parties openly say that they work for the Party of Regions. Therefore, the number one task facing the democratic forces today is to impose control over the work of the committees via representatives of opposition parties and SMD candidates, as well as international and national observers.”
The politician mentioned that today we could see authorities following the “it’s more important who’s counting the vote than the number of votes cast” principle. Thus, it’s important that all democratic forces protect the election results in a concerted way. Vitaliy Klychko also added that “UDAR” would collect citizen-documented dossiers of corrupt acts by officials and pass them on to the Provisional Electoral Fraud Investigation Committee, which the Party would like to see in the next convocation of the Parliament.
Klychko also appealed to the members of the election committees, “I wish to send a clear message to the members of election committees. Election law violations are subject to and governed by the Criminal Law. We will make every effort to bring people violating the law to justice.”
Today the Leader of “UDAR” is on a visit to Rivne Oblast. He is scheduled to meet with residents of Rokitne, Sarny, Dubno, and Rivne.
