CVU to ask CEC to declare invalid elections at constituencies Nos. 45 and 102
The Committee of Voters of Ukraine (CVU) is planning to ask the Central Election Commission (CEC) to declare invalid the elections at single-seat constituency No. 102 in Kirovohrad region where former Kyiv City Council Secretary Oles Dovhy is leading among parliamentary candidates.
"There are some troubled constituencies at which CVU cannot recognize the election results. First and foremost, the issue concerns the so-called constituency of Oles Dovhy...These cases [significant irregularities] were numerous. In the opinion of our organization, they influenced the result of the vote, and CVU is asking CEC to study these facts and make the decision on the impossibility of summing up the results at this constituency," CVU Head Oleksiy Koshel said at a press conference on Monday.
In particular, he noted that the issue concerned unlawful activities – assaults, banditry and violations of the electoral law during the election campaign and on Election Day.
"Special agreements were signed, and according to our observers, voters received a reward for these social agreements. There were instances of bribery, as well as cases of pressure on commission members and observers," Koshel said.
He also noted that CVU would insist on declaring invalid the elections at several single-member constituencies in Donetsk region, in particular, at constituency No. 45, where Yukhym Zviahilsky took the most vote.
