So far, some 500 election commissions have been established, which is not enough to carry out the vote, Purgin said.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Supreme Council of the DPR scheduled the local elections of the head and parliament for November 2. The vote is due to be held simultaneously with the Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR).
