“I will address the Supreme Council with a request to postpone the elections in the DPR for November 9, as 15% of the ballot stations are not ready yet,” Roman Lyagin said.
On Monday, DPR’s First Deputy Prime Minister Andrey Purgin said that the authorities of the self-proclaimed republic could put off the local elections of the head and parliament from November 2 to November 9.
Under a law on the elections in the republic, any resident, no younger than 30 years, who has lived on the territory of the republic for at least 10 years, can be elected as its head.
The candidates should collect at least 1,000 signatures in their support.
Alexander Zakharchenko, DPR’s prime minister, has already announced plans to participate in the elections.
Simultaneously with the election of the republic’s head, the candidates will fight for the 100 seats in the parliament. The threshold in the voting, based on a proportional representation system, is 5%.
