Звіт за результатами довгострокового спостереження (за період 28 серпня - 15 вересня)
Закон “Про вибори народних депутатів України” в цілому дозволяє провести вибори у відповідності до міжнародних стандартів. Разом з тим, Закон містить ряд недоліків. Ключовим з них є збереження змішаної виборчої системи, за якою проводитимуться позачергові вибори народних депутатів. Передбачені Законом процедури не в повній мірі узгоджено з відповідними процедурами, закріпленими у законах про президентські та місцеві вибори. Конституційність окремих положень цього Закону (наприклад, в частині позбавлення права голосу за мажоритарним компонентом виборчої системи осіб, які проживають або перебувають за кордоном чи змінили місце голосування без зміни виборчої адреси) є сумнівною. Закон не встановлює дієвих гарантій безпеки при проведенні голосування у регіонах проведення АТО. Не передбачена ним і спрощена процедура голосування для внутрішньо переміщених осіб з Донецької та Луганської областей.

A serious problem related to the system of electoral disputes in Ukraine is the system’s complexity, in particular, the existence of parallel jurisdiction ofelection commissions and courts, which in turn are divided into different instances. As a result, a complainant/plaintiff appeals to an independent authority and is not able to appeal against a decision, act, or omission. 
SUMMARY A serious problem related to the system of electoral disputes in Ukraine is the system’s complexity, in particular, the existence of parallel jurisdiction ofelection commissions and courts, which in turn are divided into different instances. As a result, a complainant/plaintiff appeals to an independent authority and is not able to appeal against a decision, act, or omission.   The number of complaints/claims to election commissions and district administrative courts is small for the period from the beginning of the election process to Saturday, October 25.
