A number of violations were committed during the second round of Kryvyi Rih mayoral election on Nov. 15, 2015.

As Censor.NET reports, this interim decision has been taken today by the Temporary Special Commission on investigation into the violations during the second round of Kryvyi Rih mayoral election. The decision was put to the vote on the initiative of Samopomich MP Pavlo Kostenko.

It was supported by the following MPs: Leonid Yemets (People's Front faction), Serhii Aleksieiev (BPP faction), Serhii Vysotskyi (People's Front faction), Yurii Levchenko (non-affiliated), Ihor Lutsenko (Batkivshchyna faction), Pavlo Kostenko (Samopomich faction), Kostiantyn Usov (BPP faction), Oleksandr Chernenko (BPP faction). Opposition Bloc representative Kostiantyn Pavlov voted negatively, Andrii Shypko (Vidrodzhennia group) and Oleh Kupriienko (Radical Party faction) abstained.

During the discussion, Kostiantyn Pavlov said the materials were insufficient for making even an interim decision, suggesting to wait for a response by the OSCE and the State Register of Voters of Ukraine. Leonid Yemets, in turn, noted that the framework decision did not affect the findings of the commission as it was an organizational and internal decision based on the information available at the moment.

According to Serhii Vysotskyi, the commission should take the decision in order to prevent any escalation of the situation.

A more radical position is pursued by Pavlo Kostenko who believes that the evidence is enough not only for the adoption of an interim decision but also for opening criminal cases against Yurii Vilkul, head of the Kryvyi Rih election commission Pavlo Hevel, and city police chief Valerii Liutyi.

Also, until Wednesday, the commission is to obtain documents from the Register of Voters of Ukraine. Its next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 9.
