Note: OPORA observation is aimed at unbiased assessment of the process of preparing and conduct of election, at facilitation of fair and free election, and at fraud prevention. Since October, 2018, Civil Network OPORA has run a large-scale observation campaign over presidential election. From the moment of official launch of election campaign, 204 observers have been enrolled all over the country. On March, 31, 2019, and in case of the second round voting , they will be joined by over 1,500 observers more.They will also conduct the parallel vote tabulation (PVT) in order to obtain voting results much sooner than official results, and more precise than exit-polls. In addition, we are monitoring the use of budget resources for indirect campaigning, we train law-enforcement bodies on peculiarities of election process; we launched a network of public ombudsmen on voting rights protection for citizens; we made assessment for Ukraine’s compliance with recommendations of international missions on electoral reform; and we run awareness raising campaigns for voters.
