DONETSK, October 7. /TASS/. More than three million people are expected to take part in the elections of the head and the parliament of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), chairman of the DPR Central Election Commission Roman Lyagin said on Tuesday.
“We will print 3,198 million ballot papers, exactly the same number as were printed for the independence referendum,” he said, adding that he would ask the republic’s Supreme Council, or parliament, to postpone the elections for November 9. “This issue was not tackled during today’s session. I hope it will be considered at the next session and the lawmakers will meet us halfway,” he said.
Since DPR’s Central Election Commission had no access to voter databases of the Ukrainian interior ministry, lists of voters drawn for the referendum would be used, he noted. “I would like to stress that citizens of other states who are fighting in the DPR self-defense forces on a voluntary basis will be able to take part in the forthcoming elections. Special polling stations will be organized for them at their garnisons,” he said.
