These figures were announced today, August 14, by the Director of the Transcarpathian research and polling institute Viktor Pashchenko in Zakarpattya press center.
The following four political forces will receive the required minimum of votes:
"Batkivshchyna" – 19.7%
Party of Regions – 14.8%
Ukraina – vpered! – 6.5%
Not decided – 22.4%
Will not vote – 8.2%
According to the sociologist these figures indicate that UDAR received the largest benefit after intergration with "Front zmin" and "Batkivshchyna". "People are eager to see some third force, thus UDAR has taken this niche," – explained Viktor Pashchenko.
What concerns the candidates runnning from the majority district the top five looks as follows:
Serhij Ratushnyak -15.1%
Pavlo Chuchka – 8.2%
Mykola Zholtani – 7.7%
Vasil Kovacs – 6.7%
Volodymyr Smolanka – 5.3%

In Pashchenko’s opinion these figures demonstrate that all the candidates have almost equal conditions and not it would be impossible to predict the winner. Some minor advantage of Ratushnyak and Chuchka is caused by their experience in politics and familiarity to the voters.
