Ukraine Presidential poll: Voting underway

AIR
In Ukraine, polling is underway to elect a new parliament.  

Surveys suggest President Volodymyr Zelensky's 'Servant of the People' party is expected to win the largest share of the votes.

Mr Zelensky is seeking a strong mandate for his party to have a shot at delivering on his promise of transforming the war-torn country by tackling pervasive corruption and implementing reforms.

Without the support of the powerful parliament, he would not be able to pass any reforms or change the cabinet of ministers he inherited from former President Petro Poroshenko.

Moscow-backed 'Opposition Platform For Life' party is predicted to come second, while the rebranded party of former President Petro Poroshenko, 'European Solidarity', is expected to drop to the third place. 

The vote was initially scheduled for October. However, Mr Zelensky dismissed the parliament in his oath-taking speech in May, calling for a snap poll.
