Candidates for the new Verkhovna Rada of 2014 (INFOGRAFIKA)
One third of the candidates for the new Verkhovna Rada are young people, 15% are temporarily unemployed, and the Piotr Poroshenko Bloc leads the most of current deputies.
This is evidenced by the monitoring data of the public network "Opora", Ukrainian Truth reports.
In the early parliamentary elections, a total of 6,627 candidates will take part: 3,121 on party lists, 3,506 in single-mandate constituencies.
Among them, 302 are present deputies of the Verkhovna Rada (total of 42 from the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko, 26 from the Fatherland region, 23 in the Freedom Party, 149 from the districts).
In all, 29 political parties will participate in the elections (8 more than in the 2012 elections).
Compared with the last regular elections, 2.5 times fewer political parties (32 against 81) nominated their candidates in the districts.
The absolute majority of candidates, both in party lists and in majority districts, received higher education (92%), 4% have general secondary education, 3% - vocational or special secondary, 1% - incomplete higher or basic higher education.
At the same time, only three parties included more than 10 candidates with secondary education in their lists: VO "Svoboda" (26 people), Political Party "5.10" (25 people) and Oleg Lyashko's Radical Party (17 people).
It is interesting that 98% of the candidates on the lists of the "Opposition bloc" party are nonpartisan, while 100% of candidates from VO "Svoboda" and 99% of the Communist Party have party tickets.
A positive trend of the current campaign is an increase in the proportion of women among candidates nominated by political parties on the lists (25.8%), youth under 35 (32%).
The majority of candidates are "middle-aged" people aged 36-59 years - 57% in the lists and 66% in the districts.
15% of candidates on party lists and 14% in majority districts are temporarily unemployed.
In general, the CEC announced 214 decisions on refusal to register 819 citizens.
In most cases, the reason for the refusal was the absence of an obligation, in the event of electing to cease activities, and to fold the representative mandate, which is incompatible with the mandate of the people's deputy (389 cases).
