"Kyiv Post's" report on recent local elections held in the western Ukrainian city of Ternopil has major omissions.
A different view point provided here.
Most stunning of all is a posting on BYuT's official 'Batkivshchyna' site, which accuses head of the presidential secretariat, Viktor Baloha, in no uncertain terms, of rigging the election. [quite ironic really]
Some portions from the article:
"A dangerous farce by administrative means with brutal legal and Constitutional violations took place in the Ternopil oblast on 15th of March. Administration officials led by Baloha want to represent this farce as free elections..Numerous falsifications took place during voting..Yes, the true number of people who voted did not exceed 30%, but an hour before the end of voting 20% of voting slips were cast.."
"What happened in Ternopil permits us to confirm with alarm, that yesterday a trial run of a total system of voting falsification took place which could also be employed during the presidential elections, and in all subsequent elections.."
"BYuT did not take part in this show under the name of Ternopil elections and does not recognise its results. We warned in advance about this and we thank our supporters - the greater portion of residents in this oblast - who did not take take part in this dirty business. We will challenge the results of this election in court.."
Tymoshenko and Yushchenko will have something to talk about during their flight home from Brussels tonight...
