Volodymyr Zelensky, the president-elect of Ukraine has charged the Central Election Committee (CEC) with dragging the announcement of results of the presidential election. Zelensky posted the video message on his Facebook page.

'There's a victory but no authority. Someone is hiding the club from me (the club is a symbol of the president's power in Ukraine, - 112 International). I'll explain what is happening: the CEC drags the official announcement of the results so that the Verkhovna Rada could drag the inauguration date. So that the inauguration would take place after May 27. And why? So that president Zelensky would not even have an opportunity to disband the Parliament. It seems unfair to me', Zelensky said.

He added that 'a president whose credibility rate makes 73 percent at least has a right to consider a possible disbanding of the Parliament and having the option to do so'.

Zelensky won the presidential election in Ukraine; in Round 2, he scored some 73 percent of votes, defeating the incumbent president Petro Poroshenko.
