"The parliament should not organize voting in Mariupol on Nov. 15 - the same day with the second round of the local polls," he said.

According to Koshel, holding elections on Nov. 15 may lead to numerous violations and disruption of the voting.

The organisation believes that under the current legislation, the date of elections should be announced within a 10-day period followed by 60 days of election process. Only after that, somewhere at the beginning of 2016, the voting should take place.
