Election to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine that took place on October 28, 2012, was the sixth Parliamentary election in the history of independent Ukraine. Elections differed from each other, each having its own peculiarities. It should be mentioned that almost all elections (except for snap elections of 2007, which took place in a year after election of 2006) were carried out under different laws. The first Parliamentary election in 1994 was conducted using majority lists, elections of 1998 and 2002 were half majority, half party-list, elections of 2006 and 2007 were conducted using party lists only and in 2012 elections were again conducted according to mixed system. The voting threshold was changed (4%, 3% and 5%), different voting procedures and many other things were also modified. However, as opposed to other post-Soviet countries (except for Baltic states), where the results were predictable and authorities have won, all elections in Ukraine were really competitive with unprogrammed results.
