KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine's election authorities are calling for a recount of last month's parliamentary vote in five disputed districts, saying tallying there had been unlawful.
Western observers deemed the Oct. 28 parliamentary election unfair, saying the imprisonment of President Viktor Yanukovych's arch-foe, Yulia Tymoshenko, and non-transparent vote tallying were a step back for democracy.
The Central Election Commission declared Monday that vote-counting in the five districts violated Ukrainian laws and asked parliament to order a repeat election in those districts.
It was unclear, however, whether the Verkhovna Rada, dominated by Yanukovych loyalists, would heed the call. There was no immediate reaction to the election authorities' call from Tymoshenko party and two other pro-Western opposition parties.
Some 2,000 protesters rallied in Kiev on Monday protesting alleged fraud and demanding an honest vote count.
