EU concern over vote count and tabulation procrastination
Statement by High Representative Vice-President Catherine Ashton and Commissioner Štefan Füle on the parliamentary elections in Ukraine
“After Sundays election day in Ukraine the High Representative Vice-President Ashton and Commissioner Füle have followed closely the vote count and tabulation. They note with increasing concern that five days after the closure of the ballot the consolidated results have still not been announced.
They urge the authorities and all parties involved to take the necessary steps to finalise the tabulation allowing for the rapid announcement of the final results, which should reflect the genuine will of the Ukrainian voters. Complaints should be dealt with swiftly and in full respect of rules and established procedures.”
