DPR local self-government bodies’ elections

The elections to the local self-government bodies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the south-east of Ukraine will be held “after the formation of the central power bodies” in the DPR, head of the republic’s Central Election Commission (CEC) Roman Lyagin told reporters.

“After the elections of the DPR head and parliament the CEC will continue its work. We will be engaged in the election observation in other countries and will also work out our law on elections to the local self-government bodies,” Lyagin said.

He also urged Kiev to accept the results of the elections in the self-proclaimed republic. “Kiev should put up with the fact that Donbas is no longer part of Ukraine, recognises it our elections or not - it’s Kiev’s problem. We have made our choice,” said the CEC head.
