The flow of appeals to the Central Election Commission from amalgamated hromadas from all regions of Ukraine does not stop. Hromadas of the Volyn, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk, Zhytomyr, Lviv, Kirovohrad, and Ternopil Oblasts in their letters addressed to the CEC call for an early resolution of the issue of the first local elections this year.
“Our appeal is dictated by a situation that for several months has remained without proper attention from the Central Election Commission. Elections to the newly formed AHs could have been scheduled for October. However, this did not happen. We see in this somebody’s desire to stop the local self-government reform in the country and not allow hromadas to develop their territories,” reads the letter of the Popelnastivska AH of the Kirovohrad Oblast.
The hromadas hope that their appeals will not be left out of CEC’s attention and that in the nearest future the Commission will decide on the appointment of the first local elections in the newly formed AHs.
The Cherkaska hromada of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, which has undergone long litigation, asks the CEC to provide their representatives with the opportunity to be present at the CEC’s meeting, when it will consider the issue of elections’ appointment.
