Five political forces would enter parliament – poll

If the snap parliamentary poll took place in Ukraine in the nearest months, five political forces would enter the parliament – the Party of Regions (26.6%), BYuT (22.2%), CPU (5.4%), Lytvyn’s Bloc (5.1%), and Our Ukraine (3.9%).

These are the results of a poll carried out by the Institute of Sociology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine during August 15-27.

None of non-parliamentary parties has approached to going though the 3% barrier to the Verkhovna Rada: the Progressive Socialist Party would get some 1.9%, the People’s Self-Defense Bloc – some 1.8%, the Socialist Party of Ukraine – some 1.1%, the United Center party – some 0.5%. Others parties and blocs would receive 2.6%. Some 9.1% of those polled would vote against all, and some 19.7% could not answer the question.

At the same time, some 68.5% of respondents said they would take part in the snap poll, some 24.7% said they would not, and some 6.7% could not answer the question.

The poll was carried out in all regions of Ukraine, the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Kyiv, and Sevastopol. On the whole, 1800 people took part in the poll.
