LUHANSK, October 10. /TASS/. There will be no minimum voter turnout requirement at the forthcoming election in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic, Sergey Kozyakov, the chairman of the republic's Central Election Commission told TASS on Friday.
Earlier reports quoted him as saying the election scheduled for November 2 would be deemed legitimate in case of a turnout of no less than 50%.
Acting President of the Luhansk Republic, Igor Plotnitsky, also addressed the same news conference. He answered a question from TASS on whether the voters living on the territories controlled by the forces loyal to the Kiev government would be able to cast ballots at the polls.
"Several options have been envisioned for such people," he said. One of them is to vote in absentia by post or via Internet.
The CEC has registered Plotnitsky as a candidate for presidency of the Luhansk People's Republic.
