"We expect that there will be competitive elections, and we have no reason to believe that this will not happen. Because now, two days before the elections, no one knows who will win and what the result will be. This is proof that Ukraine is democratic. We wanted this election to confirm and strengthen the democratic character of Ukraine," said the head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine, Hugues Mingarelli, at a briefing by short-term ENEMO observers on Friday.
According to him, a large number of observers will be able to record any violation. "And on April 21 we will have a president who represents the desire and choice of the majority of Ukrainians. Ukrainian citizens deserve democratic elections," the ambassador stressed.
In her turn, the US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch added that the ENEMO observer mission will contribute to the election process in Ukraine.
"Unbiased elections not only ensure the process (change of power. - Ed.), But also confirm the results, strengthen democratic institutions," she noted.
Speaking directly about the observer mission, the Secretary General of ENEMO and the Head of the ENEMO Mission in Ukraine Zlatko Vujovic informed that it consists of 48 long-term observers and 148 short-term observers who will disperse throughout all regions of Ukraine.
