 Kryvyi Rih election commission settles one out of 22 claims on vote rigging and allows recounting only in one polling station, - MP Markevych

The city election commission of Kryvyi Rih has granted only one out of 22 appeals regarding vote rigging at the mayoral election and authorized vote recounting only in one polling station while meeting of the newly elected city council has been scheduled for today’s morning.

Samopomich MP Yaroslav Markevych wrote on his page on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

He wrote that the election commission of Kryvyi Rih has "thrown a bone to the pro-Ukrainian forces".

"The commission has refused to consider the claims first and then announce the election results. It immediately started registration of the deputies (I remind that the commission has earlier recognized Vilkul as the winner in the mayoral race). That is why Kryvyi Rih has already got legitimately elected mayor and deputies (according to the election commission). The same commission has immediately scheduled the city council session for 9 a.m. Nov. 18, which is, today. It proceeded to the consideration of claims only after that. Understanding that it was necessary to mollify the pro-Ukrainian public or side-track its attention, the Commission deigned to allow us to recount votes at one polling station. It rejected the rest 21 claims. It was not difficult to reject them since 12 of the 18 members of the commission supported Vilkul. The Opposition Bloc, Batkivshchyna, Poroshenko Bloc, People's Front, Radical Party voted for him together. Thus the new city council will meet in four hours. The Poroshenko Bloc, People's Front, Batkivshchyna, and Radical Party (whose representatives in the city election commission voted for Vilkul) will have to explain whom they support in the city council," he wrote.
