Hromadas of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, awaiting elections, made joint statement regarding CEC’s actions

By not appointing elections in amalgamated hromadas the Central Election Commission violates the right of people to use decentralisation resources and opportunities. Such a joint statement was made by the representatives of the Dnipropetrovsk AHs, which are waiting for elections in the accessed territories in autumn of this year. The heads of the Tomakivska, Myrivska, Vasylkivska and Sofiyivska AHs believe that the CEC's actions to block elections are unacceptable.


“53% of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast area are already covered by amalgamated hromadas. Neighbouring village councils see successful development of decentralised territories and initiate amalgamations. The decision on holding of the elections is expected by the village councils willing to enter the Sofiyivska, Myrivska, Hrechanopodivska and Vasylkivska AHs expect – and that is over 18 thousand people. The Cherkaska AH is also waiting for the appointment of the first elections,” said Olena Tertyshna, director of the Dnipropetrovsk Local Government Development Centre, established by the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion, at the meeting with the oblast leadership and heads of AHs in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast State Administration.
