Poll: Parliament Six Pack – Party of Regions pick of the pack


Source: KyivPost

A recent poll showing the expected results of a fresh round of parliamentary Elections indicates that Party of Regions with 201 seats would win government with a coalition partner of their choosing. (Min required 225 seats)

Block Yulia Tymoshenko, Y-Front, Our Ukraine, the Communists Party and Lytvyn plus one other can all make offers to sit on the cabinet table. With the outcome being a gamblers dream as uncertainty takes hold all players are in with a chance.

This could prove to be tempting for Yushchenko as Our Ukraine could form a long awaited alliance with Party of Regions but they will fall short of a constitutional two-thirds Majority unless they are joined by Yatseniuk’s “Y-Front” team. A Constitutional majority could also be formed between PoR, BYuT and BVL coalition.

Based on the six parties listed this would translate into seats as following

Party Vote % Seats Seats %
Party of Regions PoR 32.7 201 44.67
Block Yulia Tymoshenko BYuT 14.2 87 19.40
Yatseniuk Front for Change Y-Front 12.8 79 17.49
Our Ukraine OU 5.4 33 7.38
Communist Party of Ukraine CPU 4.3 26 5.87
Block Volodymyr Lytvyn BVL 3.8 24 5.19
Sum 73.2 450 100

The published poll is missing details of 26.8% of undisclosed votes and which parties are below the 3% threshold.

When analysing poll results it is important to factor in the participation rate.

The participation rate is listed as ranging from 75% to 89%. This means that a party on 2.4% to 2.7% of the vote could also cross the 3% threshold quota .
