DONETSK, October 31. /TASS/. There will be no day of silence in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, head of the DPR Central Election Commission Roman Lyagin said on Friday.
“Any candidate will be able to bring key information on his program tomorrow,” Lyagin said.
There are no norms that envision the day of silence in the law on election that is why “we decided not to hold it”, he said.
The elections of the head and parliamentarians in the Donetsk People’s Republic will be held on November 2. The Central Election Commission registered two public movements — “Donetsk Republic” and “Free Donbass” to take part in the elections.
Three candidates have been registered to run for the Donetsk People’s Republic head — Alexander Zakharchenko (the republic’s incumber premier), Alexander Kofman (deputy chairman of the Novorossiya Federal State regional parliament) and parliamentarian Yuri Sivokonenko.
