SIMFEROPOL, April 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Early parliamentary and local elections in Crimea may be held before the end of the year by which time all key questions of the transitional period will have been solved, Crimean State Council (parliament) Chairman Vladimir Konstantinov said on Wednesday, April 2.

“The possibility of holding early elections is being considered but only as one of the options,” the CrimeaInform news agency quoted Konstantinov as saying.

He believes that this step is “clear and logical” as “the whole system of power is being overhauled”.

“Only when a new political system is created, people in Crimea get Russian passports and a financial system is built in the republic will we be able to talk about the elections,” Konstantinov said.

He said the Crimean parliament would be elected using a mixed electoral system - by party lists and in majoritarian constituencies.
