KIEV, October 25 /TASS/. The territorial election commission of Mariupol has asked Ukraine’s Central Electoral Commission for permission to postpone the elections in the city from October 25 to November 15 because of violations made by a print shop which was supposed to print the voting ballots, the Levyi Bereg (Left Bank) publication reported on Saturday.
"The decision was made on Saturday evening. The election commission decided that it was impossible to the voting ballots from the Priazovsky Rabochiy (Azov Worker) print office because of violations. All the 14 members of the commission put their signatures under the petition," the report said.
According to the Levyi Bereg publication, "unpacked voting bulletins, packs of voting bulletins without a stamp or with several stamps; and voting bulletins with discrepancies in the number of copies written in handwriting and in figures," were found in the print shop.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc described the election situation in Mariupol as critical. The Opposition Bloc said that representatives of the ruling coalition and the regional military-civil administration were acting in conspiracy to disrupt the elections in Mariupol.
"If the elections in Mariupol are disrupted, the world public will be notified of the total legal nihilism of Ukraine’s incumbent authorities," the Opposition Bloc said.
The Opposition Bloc’s deputies at Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) - Alexey Belyi, Vladimir Gusak and Sergey Matviyenko - have informed the Donetsk regional prosecutor’s office of attempts to intentionally disrupt the elections in Mariupol.
"Today’s situation in Mariupol can be called extraordinary. If elections are disrupted in the biggest Ukraine controlled city in Donbas, the authorities will bear full responsibility for the elections’ failure," Belyi stressed.
