Registered violations during ballot counting do not give grounds to demand recounting of total ballots on elections to the Verkhovna Rada, as declared Igor Popov, Chairman of Committee of voters of Ukraine, during press conference, ForUm's correspondent informs.

At the same time, CVU notes that the processing of elections protocols was conducted with violations of procedure norms, especially of procedure of documents’ delivering to district and territorial election commissions.

According to Popov, several territorial election commissions have already recognized results of local elections as invalid or declared about recounting. Other commissions will submit claims for consideration to courts.

Popov underlined that court hearings and appeals may protract announcement of official results and starting of new-elected councils for months.

Chairman of CVU Board reported that the total sum of payment to employees for one day of ballots recounting would make 25 mln hryvnias. “It is unreal. If the decision to recount ballots is made, it will be a political decision. It will be the first step towards repeal of elections results and parliament’s dismissal,” said Popov.

As a result of observation, CVU recommends:

CEC and all district and territorial commissions to announce election results in all districts in order to compare the data with those at the disposal of the parties’ HQ;

To recount ballots in those polling districts, where there are observers’ claims concerning violations of the procedure of processing protocols;

To conduct parliamentary and local elections separately in the future.

 “Five thousand of CVU representatives with the status of official observers worked on polling districts on March 26. CVU representatives also observed the process of protocols’ delivering to district and territorial commissions, as well as controlled the work of the commissions,” pointed out Popov.
