The voter turnout in the early presidential election in Ukraine was over 60 percent, said Mykhailo Okhendovskyi, the head of the Central Election Commission.

Voting data has already been obtained from 188 constituencies out of the total 189 where the voting took place, he said at a briefing on Monday. "Already one can say that the turnout was over 60 percent," Okhendovskyi said.

One district election commission does not have the opportunity to give information to the Elections system, the official said.

We can talk about the final results on voter turnout after the original protocols are obtained from all the polling stations, Okhendovskyi said

According to the data from the elections information analogue system shown on a screen at the CEC press center, the voter turnout was 60.29 percent according to the information from 188 constituencies, an Interfax correspondent said.

The highest turnout was in the Lviv (78.2 percent), Ternopil (76.63 percent) and Ivano-Frankivsk (73.95 percent) regions. The lowest one was registered in the Donetsk (15.37 percent), Luhansk (38.94 percent) and Odesa (46.01 percent) regions.
