KYIV, November 8 /Ukrinform/. The Bloc of Petro Poroshenko will have the greatest number of seats in parliament according to preliminary calculations of the results of voting in a multi-member district and single-member electoral districts.

Central Election Commission (CEC) Chairman Mykhailo Okhendovsky said this at a briefing on Saturday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.
