Ukraine Election

An exit poll indicates opposition parties have done well in Ukraine's election, but President Viktor Yanukovych's party could still maintain its parliamentary majority.
Sunday's election has drawn international attention because it is seen as a test of Yaunkovych's commitment to democracy and European values at a time when the charismatic opposition leader, former Premier Yulia Tymoshenko is in jail.
In the election, each voter had two ballots, one with party names and one with the name of candidates in specific constituencies.
An exit poll showed three opposition parties together tallied more votes than Yanukovych's party and its allies in the party voting. But it didn't predict the results of individual races, where the premier's party is favored.
