DONETSK, October 29. /TASS/. Online and postal voting to elect the territory's leader and Supreme Council members in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) have begun ahead of polling day on November 2, the Central Electoral Commission said on Wednesday.
October 31 is the last day of electronic balloting for voters outside the republic, said commission head Roman Lyagin. Online voter identities are being verified at the commission's official web page before unique codings are issued. Ballots can be forwarded online or sent by post.
Main candidates for the role of head of state are Prime Minister Aleksandr Zakharchenko, parliamentarian Yury Sivokonenko and Alexander Kofman, deputy chairman of the Novorossiya Federal State regional parliament.
Voters are choosing their leader and representatives for a four-year fixed term. The two political forces fighting the campaign are Donetsk Republic and Free Donbass.
