ENEMO: Ukraine was not able to ensure fair election

31.10.2012 |

Recent parliamentary elections in Ukraine can be called a step backwards compared to the 2006-2007 election

According to the head of mission of the European Network for Election Monitoring (ENEMO) Peter Novotny, ´the electoral system and laws of Ukraine were not able to provide a good election. Though it was competitive, but you cannot call it democratic.´

´Compared to the 2006-2007 elections, these elections can be called a recourse, a step back´, said Novotny.

He also noted that observers reported cases of bribery of voters, involvement of administrative resources, the pressures exerted on the media, including TV channel TVi.
