What shall we expect from next round?

2010-01-28 17:08

5197.jpegFebruary 7 is the second round of Ukraine's presidential election between two rivals - PM Yulia Timoshenko and Viktor Yanoukovich, Party of Regions leader. GeorgiaTimes has already written about the first round featuring the so-called "monitors" from Georgia, almost protagonists of the event. Curiously enough, Tbilisi is still frequently mentioned in the run-up to the coming duel between Ukraine's two heavy-weighters.


As reported earlier, before the first round of Ukrainian voting the local CEC denied registration of 2,000-member delegation of monitors from Georgia. Despite protests by Yulia Timoshenko even reconsideration of the issue brought no dividends to Tbilisi. Nonetheless, representatives of Georgia came to independent Ukraine.

Experts say that intervention of these people in Ukraine's election process was so coarse that it aroused common disgust and even laughter. Some of them operated with false certificates of media specialists, there was a person who threatened the chairman of a polling station and two Georgian citizens were caught entering a polling station and trying to tear the seals off ballot-boxes. Moreover, the law-enforcement bodies found an electric shock device hidden in a sock of one of the "experts".

Sparking furor the core of the Georgian delegation went home. Levan Tarkhnishvili, ex chairman of Georgian CEC promised that only a few representatives of Georgia would stay for the second round. According to him such a decision made by Tbilisi must ease "tension" provoked by the monitors' visit to Ukraine.

Nevertheless, recently Donetsk mayor Alexander Lukianchenko informed that Georgian citizens were massively booking rooms in Donetsk hotels getting ready for the second round of presidential election. As Regnum IA reports, the city administrator has already called on Grigol Katamadze, Georgian Ambassador to Ukraine to prevent arrival of his compatriots to Donetsk in order to avoid conflict at the time of the second election round.
