2007 Ukraine Election Results

I have published an article at Suite101.com covering Ukraine's Parliamentary election results. I was trying to hold off for the absolute final results, but figured it was safe enough with 99.93% of the votes counted.

I am very happy that the democratic forces have won a majority of seats in the Verkhovna Rada (as an alliance). However, I am dumbfounded as to why it has taken so long to count all the votes. It seems like it has taken 2-3 days to count the last 2% of ballots. Something doesn't seem right about the process, but at least we should be avoiding another round of demonstrations like we saw during the Orange Revolution after the 2004 Presidential election.

What are your thoughts about this election and the results?


As much as I am concerned all the citizens of that cursed country can burn in hell to eternity (which, I guess, is what they tried to do, but, as usual, with very little success). This is a country of traitors and antisemites and they sure deserve all the troubles that they brought upon themselves.
