Rada Says Election not Valid!

Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada has declared the November 21 election to be invalid! They have also voted no-confidence in the CEC. This is reported by the ever-reliable The Kyiv Post. (No registration required right now--that should be a permanent change, imo.)

These votes are non-binding, but still, are hugely significant!


Update: Just got an e- from our friend Pasha, "Hi, here is some info. You might have heard of it! Did you watch our parliament conference live on different chanels? There're some good results but did you see corruption and desire to leave some power in the hands of Yanukovich's "region party"... As soon as I find the info in English, I'll link to it.
