Delaying the vote count is beneficial to those involved in the criminal falsification of local election results. This was stated by Chairman of the political council Opposition Platform - For Life", Ukrainian MP Viktor Medvedchuk during a briefing at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
He emphasized that the political force had repeatedly focused attention on mass violations and falsifications during the vote count in a number of cities, in particular: in Odesa and Odesa region, Kharkiv and Kharkiv region, Mykolaiv and Mykolaiv region, as well as Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
“Today is the 9th day after the elections. Is there a final result? Absolutely not. There are some results in specific regions, which is insignificant compared to the results of all local council elections and mayoral elections. Is this a country in a smartphone? Is this the so-called digitalization? What is it when there are no voting results for nine days, and this is not the last day today when there are no voting results? Why is it like that? Does someone have a problem with counting? Or making protocols? Territorial commissions cannot compile protocols of precinct commissions and sum up the results? No, all this is beneficial to someone. It is beneficial to those who are currently engaged in the criminal falsification of election results," he stated.
According to Viktor Medvedchuk, the authorities are indulging fraud and criminal acts aimed at distorting the election results in certain regions.
"Of course, it is impossible to tolerate such things, because we see against the background of other countries like Georgia, Moldova where the elections are taking place and we already know the results next morning. And why is it like that in Ukraine? Because Ukraine is bigger? Yes, bigger. But there are more commissions, and there are also more people who count and fill in the protocols. What is the issue? Thus, the issue is that the authorities indulge fraud and criminal acts aimed at distorting the election results in certain regions. Unfortunately, this policy and these circumstances are still in place, on the 9th day after the October 25 vote," the politician added.
