 The CEC Changes the Drawing Procedure. Opposition Calls it the End of Fair Elections

The Central Election Commission (CEC) changed the drawing procedure regarding the inclusion into the district election commissions.

The corresponding draft decree was voted aye by 8 members of the Commission. 2 were against and 2 abstained. According to the Ukrainian News this decree changed the procedure voted for on May 17. The contributor to the project Oleksandr Shelestov noted that the project offers for every district commission to include candidates of the election subjects by the way of conducting one drawing procedure.

Previously, the drawing was to be conducted separately for each district commission. During the discussion Batkivshyna representative Ruslan Kniazevich criticized the decision due to the fact that there are only 5 days left to the drawing and it is unacceptable to change the procedure adopted in May. "It means only one thing - take control over all district connision and it means the end of fair elections," he said.

Kniazevich also underlined that the CEC practically takes away the election subjects' right to appeal this decision since you need more time for the appeal than there is left until the beginning of the drawing.
