150 Canadians take part in the observation mission conducted by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC), the Head of the Mission Paul Grod told Monday at the press conference. The Mission Team includes the Head of the Mission and Chief Observer, 9 mid-term observers and 139 short-term observers, for a total of 150 people.
“We selected the professional staff of legal experts, judges, experts on election process,” Grod reported and added all observers speak Ukrainian.
According to his words, UCC representatives observed over two thousands polling stations in 13 regions of Ukraine.
Grod stressed Canada is a partner of Ukraine. “It is important for Ukrainians to be aware of it,” he added.
The Chief Observer Markian Shwec, in turns, noted the election was conducted in absolutely normal way. He added that Ukrainian election is rather interesting than the Canadian one.
UCC Observation Mission will release its final report on the elections approximately two months after the election.
As a reminder, the Mission’s mandate is to contribute to the conduct of free and fair elections and to provide an independent and impartial observation report on the electoral process in Ukraine, UCC reported. The Mission commenced its activities on March 6, 2006 and will continue in Ukraine until April 2, 2006.
