Four parties enter the Verkhovna Rada after the elections on July 21. Opposition Platform – For Life and European Solidarity have a sharp rise of rating, as the research published by the Belgium-Ukraine Research Institute shows.
“As we enter the homestretch of the parliamentary campaign in Ukraine, with elections to be held on Sunday, one of the biggest surveys conducted in the country this year showed that the new Ukrainian parliament would consist of the following political parties: “Sluga Narodu” Party led by Dmytro Razumkov and backed by the newly elected President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy (41,2%), “Opposition Platform – Za Zhittya” led by Yuriy Boyko, Vadim Rabinovich, and Viktor Medvedchuk (18.6%), the “European Solidarnist” Party of the former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko (11.1%), and the “Batkivschyna” Party of Yulia Tymoshenko (7.1%),” the research reads.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky officially dissolved the Verkhovna Rada and appointed the snap elections for July 21. The Cabinet of Ministers should provide the funding of the elections.
On May 24, the electoral process kicked off in Ukraine.
According to the Ukrainian legislation, the electoral process of snap elections begins on the next day after the President’s decree on early termination of the mandate of Verkhovna Rada and appointment of the new elections is published. Therefore, the electoral process starts on May 24, without the Central Commission making any decisions.
