According to exit polls, 7 parties will enter the new Verkhovna Rada


26 October 2014

Two minutes after polls closed on election day in Ukraine, the Ukrainska Pravda online newspaper released the following data from exit polls conducted around the country. It appears that the Petro Poroshenko Bloc has not performed as well as expected, as opinion polls prior to the election had given the party as much as 40%. As matters stand, it appears that – combined – the parties of the president and prime minister will have an absolute majority of seats, and would thus not be compelled to form a coalition with potentially unreliable blocs and politicians. At the same time, for the first time since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party of Ukraine will apparently not enter parliament. This is probably a function of the fact that millions of Ukrainians (up to 4 million, by some estimates) in Crimea and areas of the Donbas under the control of pro-Russian separatists were unable to vote, and have traditionally supported the leftist and pro-Moscow political forces in Ukraine.

These exit poll numbers reflect only the result from the proportional representation (party list) half of the ballot. Members of other parties may enter parliament from single-mandate constituencies in numbers great enough to form factions and alliances that would function as de facto parties.

At a press conference at the Ukrinform information agency, the National Exit Poll conducted by the Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation, Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KMIC) and the Razumkov Center for Economic and Political Research announced the following results:
