Zelensky launches Facebook poll on Rada's early dissolution

KYIV. April 23 (Interfax) - Volodymyr Zelensky, who has apparently won the presidential election in Ukraine, has launched a poll on his Facebook page as to whether the Verkhovna Rada should be dissolved early.

A post saying "Will you support the Rada's early dissolution?", which appeared on the webpage titled Volodymyr Zelensky - Servant of the People several hours ago, has generated about 2,000 comments by now.

The Ukrainian Central Elections Commission reported after processing 99.9% of electronic voting reports that 73.23% of voters (13,527,512 people) cast their ballots for Zelensky and 24.45% (4,517,121 people) for incumbent President Petro Poroshenko in the second round of the presidential election on Sunday.
