Other parties that do not overcome the 5% threshold will receive 11 places in the majoritarian districts, while self-nominated candidates will have 60 seats in the new parliament.

To create a coalition in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, at least 225 mandates are needed, so the pro-presidential force has a chance to create the so-called "mono coalition."

At the same time, the situation may change in the course of further counting of votes.
