DONETSK, May 18 /Itar-Tass/ - Parliamentary elections in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine will be held in September according to the majority vote principle, Co-Chairman of the republican government Denis Pushilin said on Sunday.
“We’re now actively preparing for the September 14 elections. The elections will be held according to the majority vote principle. We’re now working on this and we’ll achieve it,” Pushilin said at a meeting in the center of Donetsk.
The meeting in Lenin Square in Donetsk started on Sunday afternoon and gathered about a thousand people. The participants are holding flags of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Donbass volunteer force and Russia tri-color flags.
The east Ukrainian Donetsk and Lugansk regions held referendums on May 11, at which residents overwhelmingly voted for their independence from the Kiev authorities. The Donetsk People’s Republic has also drafted a plea for admission to Russia.
