Economic ranking of political parties           

By the Editorial Board of VoxUkraine
Ukraine is going to have a highly competitive parliamentary election in a week. Polls suggest that eight parties are going to make it. While some voters are dead set in their preferences, many voters are still uncertain about their choice. Indeed, there are many new faces in the political arena. If party programs provide any guide to how these parties are going to behave in the future, there is a broad spectrum of possibilities offered to voters.

  1. People’s Front (Yatsenyuk)
  2. Civil Position (Grytsenko)

  4. Samopomich
  5. Opposition bloc
  6. Communist Party (KPU)
  7. Radical Party (Lyashko)
