Its not the voting but the counting that matters....

Take FIVE days in a democratic civilised developed nation to count the votes after an election and you would expect that the public would be wondering what monkey business the government is up to. But in Ukraine no one appears to care. As if their voices would be heard anyhow?
How on earth can it take five days to count the votes? More like it takes five days to make sure the desired result is announced. Anyhow the media are not happy, or should I say the media who are not afraid to say so are not happy.
