Ukraine hands President Zelenskiy's party a majority: polls

Date 22.07.2019

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy's Servant of the People party has scored some 42% in Ukraine's parliamentary election, according to preliminary results released by Ukraine's electoral body early Monday. This puts the party far ahead the competition, with pro-Kremlin Opposition Platform-For Life placing second with only 12.5% of the vote.

The results are based on over 20% of the ballots counted.

The 41-year-old comedian-turned-president has convinced voters of his Servant of the People partyplatform, which includes negotiating a political solution to the eastern Ukrainian conflict, boosting the economy and cracking down on corruption.

It still remains unclear whether Servant of the People will need to form a coalition with one or more parties to govern.
