Holos (Ukrainian: Голос), translated as Voice or Vote, is a liberal and pro-European political party in Ukraine, which was led by Ukrainian musician Svyatoslav Vakarchuk until March 2020.[11] The party won 20 MPs in the 2019 parliamentary election[12] and became part of the opposition in the current Ukrainian parliament.[13][14] The party split late July 2021 and seven MPs were expelled from the party.[15] As of September 2021, only nine of the party's 20 seats in the Verkhovna Rada are held by MPs who are loyal to the party; the remaining 11 are held by MPs who have formed a breakaway group called Justice (Ukrainian: Справедливість; Spravedlyvist).[16]
