According to the final national exit poll results, five parties will enter Ukraine's new parliament. 

Volodymyr Zelenskyy's Servant of the People - 44.2%

Viktor Medvedchuk's Opposition Platform - For Life - 11.4%

Petro Poroshenko's European Solidarity - 8.8%

Yulia Tymoshenko's Batkivshchyna - 7.4%

Sviatoslav Vakarchuk's Golos - 6.5%

In that way, if the national exit poll results are correct, Servant of the People has shown the highest in the history of post-1998 Ukraine result in parliamentary elections. Second and third highest were achieved by ousted ex-president Viktor Yanukovych's Party of Regions in 2007 (34.37%) and ex-president Viktor Yushchenko's Nasha Ukraina in 2002 (23.57%). Before 1998, Ukrainian parliament was elected based on the first-past-the-post system alone.

If the exit poll results are true, the seat distribution among the party lists will be as follows:

Servant of the People - 127 seats

Opposition Platform - For Life - 33 seats

European Solidarity - 25 seats

Batkivshchyna - 21 seats

Golos - 19 seats

The remaining votes, according to the exit polls, were distributed between Strength and Honor (4.3%), Opposition Bloc (3.3%), Party of Sharij (3.1%), Oleh Lyashko's Radical Party (2.8%), Groysman's Ukrainian Strategy (2.2%), and Svoboda (2.1%). The rest got less than 2% of the votes, national exit polls state.

According to the Ukrainian law, any party that receives 2% of the votes or more will receive annual state funding for the next five years.
