The 2010 Crimean parliamentary election where held on 31 October 2010 as a part of the general 2010 Ukrainian local elections. Unlike the previous election to the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea (Crimean parliament), they were conducted on the mixed member proportional representation system. In order to gain representation in the Parliament of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, a party or bloc had to garner at least 3 percent of the total vote. The Party of Regions won the elections with an overwhelming majority.[3]

Background

Prior to 2009 amendments to the Crimean Constitution, the parliament's term was limited to four years. It has since been increased to five after Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko signed the amendments into law in April 2009.[4]

New elections where set for October 31, 2010 by the Supreme Council on August 4, 2010. In June 2010 the parliament had failed to fix the election date on October 31. The resolution was voted against by a number of coalition factions, including the ruling For Yanukovych! electoral bloc (that included the Party of Regions).[5] Early July 2010, the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s national parliament) supported by the Party of Regions’ initiative, announced local elections on the last day of October 2010.[5]
