The protocol was signed by all CEC members, out of them, five - with an individual opinion.
According to the CEC protocol, out of 37.051,449 citizens of Ukraine, included into the electoral roll, 25.496,008 citizens (68.8% of voters) participated in voting. 1.113,055 voters (4.36%) did not support either of the candidates. 12.481,266 citizens (48.95%) voted for Viktor Yanukovych, for Yulia Tymoshenko - 11.593,357 electors (45.47%).
Earlier, at its meeting the CEC considered and entered into the protocol data from all 225 territorial constituencies of Ukraine and from constituencies abroad. At the same time, some CEC members from BYuT refused to announce data in Vinnytsia, Volyn and Sumy regions, as well as in territorial constituency No. 120 in Lviv region, motivating it by current judicial proceedings, whose decisions have not yet come into force, but may lead to data correction. Therefore, data on these regions were made public by CEC Secretary Tetiana Lukash.
