The Central Election Committee of Ukraine believes that Volodymyr Zelensky's charges with 'dragging time' are groundless. The authority claimed it actually breaks its own personal best in terms of the speed - as Deputy Head of the CEC Yevhen Radchenko put it.
UNN news agency quoted Radchenko on April 25.
'These are groundless claims. The CEC breaks all personal bests in terms of speed, and it accepts the documents from the electoral commissions in the record-high mode, which commands respect', he said.
On April, the CEC took data from more than a hundred commissions. Radchenko added that the CEC only has to wait for the date from three of 199 districts in Ukraine, and from 40 out of 101 commissions in the foreign district.
Under Ukrainian law, the CEC should set and announce the results of the election by May 1.
In the first round of the election, the Committee announced the results three days ahead of the deadline.
