The Ukrainian World Congress international non-government organization has decided to send its observers to the elections of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine set for October 28, 2012.
Ukrainian News learned this from a statement by the press service of the international non-government organization.
“In response to the Foreign Minister of Ukraine’s January 25th pledge to invite International Election Observers to monitor the upcoming October 28th parliamentary elections, the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) has announced that it will once again actively participate in Ukraine’s electoral process by hosting a delegation of International Election Observers,” the statement reads.
As a result, at the last UWC Board meeting, a motion was approved to establish a special committee to lead and coordinate an international election observation mission.
Tasks of the committee are to solicit experienced volunteers from UWC member organizations worldwide, develop an election observer strategy, prepare training materials and briefings for the election monitors and coordinate the Observer Mission.
“Due to their long-time experience in leading past election missions, Tamara Olexii, President of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America, and Paul Grod, President of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress were appointed by the UWC Board to serve as Committee Co-chairs,” reads the statement.
