KIEV, August 18. /TASS/. The head of Donetsk region has asked Ukraine’s Central Election Commission not to hold local elections in 52 towns and villages of Donbas that are not located on the contact line.

In a letter to the commission, obtained by the Ukrainian Novosti news agency, the region’s head, Pyotr Zhebrovsky, asks "not to hold the local elections due on October 25."

Local citizens have announced plans to unite and called on the regional administration to create eight new territorial districts. Therefore, holding local elections there is "inadvisable," he said.

Earlier this month, Zhebrovsky said the local elections in Donbas should be postponed until 2017, saying the region has "no political parties at all."

Meanwhile, the deputy head of the Central Election Commission, Andrei Magera, said the elections in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions need to be held in all the settlements controlled by Kiev.
