Ukraine's Parliamentary Election Results аt а Glance

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Ukraine's Central Election Commission published on Wednesday the official list of deputies elected to parliament in an Oct. 26 poll.

The commission data shows that presidential Petro Poroshenko's bloc won the highest number of seats while the political party People's Front, led by Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, took second place. 

Half of the 450-seat chamber is elected by a proportional system of party lists. A party must achieve at least 5 percent of votes to enter parliament.

The other half of parliament is elected in single-mandate election districts on a first-past-the-post basis.

These ought to number 225 seats, as with the party-list seats, but have fallen to 196 because of the loss of Crimea, annexed by Russia, and separatists who are preventing voting taking place in parts of eastern Ukraine.

This means that only 421 deputies will have seats in parliament.

The following is a distribution of parliamentary seats among political parties, according to data provided by the election commission:
