Poll Notes Little Change in Voter Sentiment.

A recent public opinion poll published on May 29, 2007 (Source UkrNews) prior to the announcement of the October 30 Parliamentary election confirms little change in voter sentiment with Party of Regions securing over 51% of the parliamentary seats in their own right. The polls have been fairly consistent and the only party to experience a shift in fortune is the Socialist Party of Ukraine, headed by Olexander Moroz, who is currently on 2.8% (0.2% below the 3% parliamentary electoral threshold). If the polling results hold, and all indication is that they will, then the question must be asked – for what purpose has the president initiated his actions. The opportunity for the ppposition parties to strengthen the loyalty of their nominated representatives?

* Note adjustment made for comparison to People’s Self-Defence and Our Urkaine whose results have been combined in the published poll. The “split” is estimated based on previously published polls.
