Were the first parliamentary elections since “orangenen revolution “and concomitantly the first free and fair elections in the history of the country. They were generally seen as tuning over the continuation of the liberal, westoriented course of the acting president Wiktor Juschtschenko. Its party lost numerous voices due to the common discontent me as halfheartedly felt policy of the president, the list of candidates of the former Prime Minister and radical Reformerin the Julia Timoschenko became however second-strongest Karft. The party oily arks and former Prime Ministers Wiktor Janukowytsch became with a voice portion of 32,1% a strongest party, the largest support found to that so far as an opponent of the democratic revolution and supporter Vladimir PUT in the valid Janukowytsch in the usually russichsprachigen east of the country, while in Kiew and in the west of the country the parties of the revolution attained the majority.

Picture of 2005
the parliament, the Werchowna Rada, has at present 450 seats, which are to be occupied by choice again.

Parliamentary elections of this year are held exclusively on the basis of the elections on the basis of proportional representation right. 450 Parlamatssitze are assigned in accordance with nationaluniform party lists. It applies with this choice 3-%ige check clause. Those are the first elections, which take place exclusively after elections on the basis of proportional representation right. The elections 1990 and 1994 were held exclusively after Mehrheitswahlrecht. The candidate should obtain the absolute majority in its constituency in the first ballot, what led 1994 to several by-elections and constant Unterbesetzung of the parliament. 1998 and 2002 were assigned 225 seats in accordance with party lists and the other 225 than direct mandates, whereby only a relative majority of the voices in the constituency was enough now.

Since the direct mandates were mostly acquired by non-party candidates, which made education more difficult of a clear majority then in the parliament, becomes from the jetztigen choice to elections on the basis of proportional representation right v.a. the stabilization of the parties in the parliament expects.

The changed condition limits the authority of the president during the formation of a government in favor of the parliament. Now the Prime Minister no more is not suggested to the parliament for simple confirmation, the Präsidnt must consider now majority conditions in the Werchowna Rada and suggest only the representative of the majority party (- EN) the parliament to the choice. It is thus expected that it comes to the first coalition government carried by the parties. In addition also the auditing rights of the parliament were extended in relation to the government and instruction-authorize-sneeze the president limited.
