The Central Election Commission confirmed that it may, under the current legislation, appoint the first elections in 45 amalgamated hromadas in the oblasts, where the martial law was applied in December 2018.
The Central Election Commission reported this in the official letter to MinRegion.
“The question of the possibility to appoint the first local elections in amalgamated hromadas for 2019 will be resolved by the Central Election Commission according to the requirements of the Law and Procedure,” reported the letter.
The CEC noted that the date of the first local elections, as well as the date of commencement of the election process for such elections, shall be determined by the Commission after the end of the martial law period.
It is worth mentioning that the martial law, introduced in 10 regions of Ukraine, ended two months ago – on 26 December 2018.
As of 27 February, in general, 74 amalgamated hromadas of Ukraine are waiting for the appointment of the first elections.
