Objective. Latest geopolitical realities of the Ukrainian society (eurointegration processes, revolutions, military conflict) clearly determined the disbalance in formation of territorial party-political system. It’s obvious seen in the fact that the total vector of political parties impact doesn’t enable the balance to entire national and regional interests. So, among the political and geographical research it is necessary to conduct complex monitoring and analysis concerning social and geographical problems to improve the political sphere. Impact reflection through the prizm of political forces will allow to determine territorial structure of the state in space and time. Methodology. I used general scientific and special research methods for electorial and geographical research of territorial organisation of society political sphere. Map-making method is a perfect analytical and synthesis potential in this context. Results. In this article I conducted the research of political and geographical differentiation of the territory, analysed the political orientation of the population. Geospacial analyses of party-political system of Ukraine was conducted taking into consideration the criteria of territorial-political unity. I concentrated the attention on determining the party impact on formation of bodies of local authority and self-government, electorial sympathy. According to the results of local election 2015 I estimated the complement of regional and town councils of regional centres and also the elections of mayors of regional centres and large cities. I found out the territorial tendencies as for the complement of bodies of local self-government. Practical value. For social-geographical science the practical meaning of obtained results lies in anticipating and prospective planning of party-political system of Ukraine; representing regional politics in prospects of state unity; in further learning the problem of party impact not only in geographical science but also in similar subjects researching current condition and other structural and dynamic processes of party surroundings as well; for teaching political-geographical subjects in educational establishments.

Key words: elections, geography of impact, political party, party-political system, local authority, self-government, political interaction.
