The CEC refused the elections in the border areas
The Central election Commission appointed the first local elections in 24 regions, but in the Ukraine-controlled territory near the demarcation line in the Donbas is not covered. In this regard, the Donetsk regional organization of the party “servant of the people” insists on conducting the election process.

The party recalled that the CEC, taking into account the recommendations of the security forces, took the decision to cancel local elections in some territories along the contact line.
“The Donetsk regional organization of the party “servant of the people” are categorically against the limitations of the electoral rights of the residents of Donbass in any form. We support the holding of local elections throughout the territory controlled by Ukraine in the region. Donetsk military-civil administration and the entire team of the President in the Donetsk region held a series of consultations with the joint forces command and the anti-terrorist center of the SBU to create a safe environment for expression in the frontal areas. We voiced our General and principled elections in Donbass to be held, without exception,” – said in a statement.
