Ukraine's Parliamentary Elections Took Place Sunday, Ballots Are Still Being Counted With No Party Holding A Majority Of Votes

By Scott McLean

Since there are about 45 political parties in the country and no party is expected to receive 50 percent of the votes, some of these parties must work together and form a coalition to achieve a majority in the Ukrainian Rada.

The results of the election were not yet final at the time of this publication, but it seems clear that if the reforms brought about by Ukraine's Orange Revolution are to continue, at least three or four parties must work together.

Later today, Planet News Views will look at what went on behind the scenes of the campaign to elect candidates interested in continuing with those changes in Ukraine.
