The Committee of Voters of Ukraine (CVU) has not registered massive or systemic irregularities that could have significantly influenced the election returns, reads a CVU statement, UKRINFORM reported.

The CVU says a major problem in Ukraine's 2010 presidential election is a poor quality of electoral roll and thus massive inclusion of citizens into the lists of electors upon a decision of precinct commissions. The number of such inclusions ranges from several voters to 100 per a polling station. The Committee points to illegality of such procedure.

However, according to CVU observers, the citizens who really have had to vote at these polling stations, but did not found themselves in these lists for some reasons, were overwhelmingly added to the roll.

According to the CVU, a total number of electors who voted at their place of residence on January 17, 2010 corresponded to the average number of such voters compared with the previous election in all.

The Central Election Commission (CEC) coped with its duties on the Voting Day as a whole. At the same time, the CEC paid poor attention to explaining some procedures during the voting to commission members and citizens. Participation of CEC member Anatoliy Pysarenko, who has already reached the retirement age, in CEC meetings was an individual question.

The CVU recommends solving a problem on legitimacy of CEC member Pysarenko even before the release of official returns. The Committee is calling on him to refuse from participating in the meeting when the election returns will be announced in order not to doubt this decision's legality.

The CVU is also calling on those candidates who failed to progress to a runoff to refuse from the attempts of challenging the election returns as this may affect preparations for a runoff.

The Committee also recommends the parliament to address a question about voting at the place of residence and inclusion of voters into the electoral roll on the Voting Day before a runoff.
