KIEV, November 13. /TASS/. Ukraine has toughened the rules for using the system of electronic petitions on the president’s website, the presidential administration said on Friday.
Users of email addresses hosted by Russian Internet domains, such as mail.ru, yandex.ru and rambler.ru, will not be able to take part in electronic voting since Friday, the administration said.
Moreover, voters will have to submit online numbers of their credit cards issued by Ukrainian banks, as well as personal tax codes.
The electronic petitioning option was launched on the presidential website in late August. A petition is considered by the head of state if it gets at least 25,000 voters within three months after the publication.
Among the petitions which collected the support of 25,000 names were the proposal to appoint former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko ambassador to Honduras and to appoint former Georgian president and Odessa governor Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of Ukraine’s prime minister.
