The first elections in 78 amalgamated hromadas took place on 23 December. In the Zhytomyr Oblast more than 28 thousand voters elected AH heads and deputies.

As of 6pm on 26 December, the official results of the elections were still not announced by the CEC. According to preliminary estimates, the residents of the newly formed AHs elected Irena Lisova as hromada leader of the Hryshkovetska AH, Taras Yaryhin as the head of the Shvaykivska AH, Halyna Kudlay as the AH head of the Rayhorodotska hromada, Oleksandr Chereshnyuk as the leader of the Vchorayshenska AH, Ivan Rozvadovskyi as the head of the Chudnivska AH, and Serhiy Melnyk as the hromada head of the Vilshanska AH.

The hromadas have also elected deputies of local councils. The voter turnout in the elections in the Zhytomyr Oblast was the highest in the country:

  • Vilshanska AH – 60%
  • Shvaykivska AH – 65%
  • Hryshkovetska AH – 60%
  • Chudnivska AH – 51,6%
  • Vchorayshenska AH – 56%
  • Rayhorodotska AH – 65%

“Hromadas have made their choice. Now the newly elected heads and deputies need to promptly start work on the formation of new government bodies, reorganisation of former village councils and preparation of the budget-2019. The Zhytomyr Local Government Development Centre is ready to assist hromadas in making their first steps,” said Vasyl Nevmerzhytskyi, Director of the Zhytomyr LGDC.
