A key problem of Ukrainian political elite is the lack of trust between the participants of the pre-election race, speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Lytvyn said during the meeting with the head of the OSCE / ODIHR election observation missions Dame Audrey Glover. "Until there is the necessary level of trust between the parties, there will always be talk of violations," the Verkhovna Rada press service quoted Lytvyn.

As for the election law, the speaker noted that it is not perfect as there will be MPs of two classes - those who are elected in majority constituencies will actively work with the voters, and those elected from party lists will follow exclusively the party leaders. According to Lytvyn, the situation will not promote political structuring of society. The speaker also called too big the 5% electoral threshold, noting however, that this may contribute to the unification and consolidation of parties.

Summing up, Lytvyn said that the electoral law, in spite of its flaws, is the result of compromise and a "step in the direction of democracy." However, he said that the document was adopted a year before the start of the election campaign.

Lytvyn considers that now the main task is to ensure the free expression of will of the people, and transparent vote counting.
