Igor Plotnitsky was elected as head of the Peace for Luhansk Soil public organization on Monday.
Plotnitsky, who has earlier occupied the post of the Luhansk defense minister, was elected republican prime minister by local parliament on August 20 and was also approved as republican leader.
Luhansk republican elections were initially set on November 2. But after consultations with the Donetsk republican CEC the Luhansk CEC asked the republican parliament People’s Council on Monday to delay elections till November 9 over massive restoration works which should be done at polling stations in mostly damaged districts of the republic. The People’s Council pledged to consider the petition within next two days.
President Petro Poroshenko said late September Ukraine is not planning to acknowledge the elections on the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics.
“The elections, announced by DPR and LPR with violation of election rights and the Ukrainian legislation will not be acknowledged by Ukraine, the world and I hope, Russia,” Poroshenko said at a news conference on the country’s development strategy for up to 2020.
