"For the ninth day Ukraine does not know the election results - is this digitalization?" the Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party and MP Viktor Medvedchuk said during a briefing in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, as NewsOne reports.
“Regarding the violations, there are massive violations, falsifications in the election. As for our party, we have repeatedly stated this. Such violations continue in Odesa and Odesa region, Kharkiv and Kharkiv region, Mykolaiv and Mykolaiv region, Donetsk, Luhansk, literally everywhere. Moreover, think about it, today is the 9th day after the elections and the votes are still being counted. Is there a final result? Absolutely not,” the MP said.
According to him, “there are certain results in certain regions, which is insignificant against the background of the results of all elections to local councils and elections of city mayors.”
“Is this a country in a smartphone? This is the so-called digitalization? What is it when there are no voting results in 9 days, and today is not the last day without voting result. Why are there no results? Can't count? They cannot count? They cannot fill in the protocols? Territorial commissions cannot put together the protocols of district commissions and state results? No, all is there, all this can be done, but it is beneficial for someone,” he said.
Medvedchuk stressed that this is “beneficial to those who are currently engaged in the criminal falsification of election results.”
“Of course, such things cannot be tolerated, because we see against the background of other countries, like Georgia, Moldova, where elections are held, that we already know the results in the morning. Why is it like this in Ukraine? Because Ukraine is bigger? Yes, it is. But there are also more commissions and there are more people who count and fill in the protocols. What is the question then? And the question is that the authorities condone fraud and criminal actions aimed at distorting the election results in certain regions. Unfortunately, this policy and these circumstances are present until now, on the 9th day after October 25 vote,” the parliamentarian summed up.
