Finance Ministry must seek additional funds for financing early parliamentary elections.

UAH 365 million allocated by Finance Ministry are not enough for elections. Cabinet must seek additional UAH 200 million. This money will be given to blocs and parties that will get to the parliament. There is a resolution adopted in 2006 that foresees compensation for election agitation to those parties that win elections and get to the parliament. According to sociologists, in case there are five political parties and blocs in a new parliament, the State must allocate them about UAH 200 million.

The CEC stated that decision on compensation of expenditure for political agitation will be taken after elections and money will be allocated not earlier than winter 2008.

According to head of finance department of the CEC Oleksy Osadchuk, political parties who won elections-2006 have not yet got compensation for political agitation. They are promised to get it in November-December of the current year.

In total election agitation-2006 cost the State UAH 126 million. The parties spent for agitation about UAH 250 million. Party of regions, “Our Ukraine” and SPU had the biggest expenses.

Political parties do not intend to refuse State compensation for political agitation, however they also do not hurry the CEC to make payment.
