DONETSK, October 12. /TASS/. The Central Election Commission of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has denied registration for participation in the forthcoming elections to organizations Novorossia and Oplot, chairman of the Central Election Commission Roman Lyagin told TASS on Sunday.
“Novorossia and Oplot were denied registration due to improper execution of documents,” he said. He reminded that the last day for submitting registration documents was October 10. “So, these movements have no time to re-do their documents,” he said, adding that the DPR Central Election Commission had denied registration to several other public movements.
According to Lyagin, only two political forces have been allowed to take part in the election campaign - the Donetsk Republic public movement and the Free Donbass public association. However he added that decisions about a number of other organization were yet to be taken.
As of today, six candidates for the post of the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic have filed their documents with the Central Election Commission. DPR incumbent Prime Minister Alexander Zakhrachenko, according to Lyagin, has submitted the entire package of documents. Two other candidates are self-nominees Alexander Kofman and member of the DPR Supreme Council (legislature) Yuri Sivokonenko.
“The DPR interior ministry is checking the adequacy of information provided for three more candidates,” Lyagin noted.
Elections to the DPR People’s Council and elections of the head of the republic are scheduled for November 2.
