An exit poll published by a Ukrainian NGO says Volodymyr Zelensky’s Servant of the People party is on course to win 44.2% percentage of the vote as Ukrainians endorse his reform agenda.

The party, which is led in parliament by Dmytro Razumkov, is on course to win the most seats in the Ukrainian parliament after Zelensky called a snap election following his inauguration as president in May.

Five parties look on course to clear the 5% threshold to enter parliament.

Speaking in Kiev after the polls closed, President Zelensky said he was inviting a party led by rock star Svyatoslav Vakarchuk to hold talks on forming a coalition.

Vakarchuk’s Holos (The Voice) party has so far won 6.4% of the vote.
