“Today our Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights has opened its election office to observe the local elections in Ukraine, which are scheduled for October 25,” said Head of the Mission Tana de Zulueta.

OSCE observers will not monitor the elections in self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republic, according to the speaker. OSCE cannot accept the invitation of some entity that is not a member state of the organization.

“I have a great honor to be the head of the mission team located in Kyiv, which consists of 16 experts from various OSCE member states. Next week, long-term observers to arrive to work across the country, in all regions where elections will be held. OSCE has made a request for getting 100 long-term observers for the elections. In addition, we also make a request to Member States to ensure that they give us another 600 short-term observers, who will monitor the process on election day,” said the Head of the Mission.

Regularly scheduled local elections in Ukraine are planned for October 25, 2015. The elections will be conducted a little over a year since the 2014 snap local elections, which were only held throughout parts of the country (due to the armed conflict).
