LUHANSK, November 2. /TASS/. Foreign observers monitoring elections in Ukraine's self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic mark a high voter turnout at polling stations which opened at 8am, Moscow time.
“We have just visited a polling station that was filled to capacity. My first impression is that people show huge interest in the elections,” Manuel Ochsenreiter from Germany told TASS.
He said there were hundreds of people in the premises, elderly and families with children among them. The observer said he had seen no violations as of yet, adding that the elections proceeded calmly and marking efficient security measures.
Republic’s incumbent leader Igor Plotnitsky, head of the Federation of Trade Unions Oleg Akimov, Health Minister Larisa Airapetyan and businessman Viktor Penner are running for the post of Luhansk republican leader.
Three public movements, including Peace to Luhansk Land, Luhansk Economic Union and People’s Union are vying for 50 seats in the People’s Council. Deputies in local parliament are elected only on party lists.
