Sociologists predict 60% turnout in elections for Verkhovna Rada

Director of the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation Iryna Bekeshkina has predicted turnout of less than 60% for early parliamentary elections in Ukraine on October 26.
She said this on Monday at a press conference dedicated to National Exit Poll 2014, while answering a question from Ukrinform’s reporter.
“There is a feeling that voter turnout in parliamentary elections will be somewhat lower than in presidential elections. Firstly, the whole experience says that there are fewer people in parliamentary elections than in presidential elections. Secondly, there are too many of those undecided on the vote. And we know that many of those undecided will not go to the polls. I think that there will be about 60% [at polling stations], but no more,” Bekeshkina said.
The sociologist said that the percentage of those undecided, according to a survey conducted by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation, was 32% and according to surveys conducted by other pollsters – 20%.
