On 25 March 2004 the Ukrainian parliament adopted the new Law on Election of People’s Deputies of Ukraine, replacing the law that was in force since 2001. The new law introduced an election system with pure proportional representation, replacing the previous mixed system whereby half of the MPs were elected from single mandate constituencies. On 7 July 2005, the parliament adopted a new version of the law on the election of members of parliament (technically, the new law only made amendments to the law adopted in 2004). This law, except for a few provisions, came into force on 1 October 2005.
