Exit polls indicate today's elections may produce a paper-thin and fragile BYuT-NUNS majority coalition with 227 to 233 deputies in the 450 seat parliament. If Lytvyn's bloc, join them, this would increase to 252 - a reasonable working majority.
PoR and Communists will probably only be able to muster 198 to 204 between them. If they are jointed by Lytvyn's bloc they will still only secure 223 places - insufficient to form a majority.
But there are big buts..
PoR's sponsors will not readily accept their party going into opposition - they run too much of Ukraine's industrial base to allow their political enemies to control the country's economy. In their eyes Yushchenko's dismissal of parliament, and today's election, was illegal in any case. They were set fair for several more years in power until Yushchenko pulled the plug on the VR, so they will be hurting bad..
PoR will be desperate to form and lead a stable grand coalition with NUNS, and will demand the economic portfolios in any new cabinet. The wily fox Lytvyn will probably be working on a deal on these lines right now..
p.s. All pre-election opinion polls underrated BYuT 'big-time' yet again.
Update: PoR's own exit poll has PoR at 36%, BYuT 30%, NSNU 11%, Commies 4.5%, with Lytvyn's bloc 'overcoming the 3% barrier'. Again it looks as if Lytvyn will be the king maker.
