 Draft bill on Nov. 15 elections in Krasnoarmiisk and Mariupol registered in parliament

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine registered draft bill on holding local elections in Krasnoarmiisk and Mariupol, the Donetsk region, on Nov. 15.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainska Pravda, the bill authored by Mariupol-elected MP Serhii Taruta was registered on Wednesday.

Taruta proposes to hold city mayoral elections of Krasnoarmiisk and Mariupol, as well as elections to local city councils, on Nov. 15.

The draft also stipulates that the ballots will be printed by the Central Elections Commission instead of local commissions, as it happened for Oct. 25 elections and was the reason for their disruption.

Ukrainska Pravda's source in the CEC noted that the bill was supposed to be passed this week.
