Office of the President of Ukraine stated that the election campaign and the very process of voting in the local election in this country met the highest democratic standards and the current legal framework. This is mentioned on the website of the head of the state.
"It's possible that in certain cities, there will be so-called second rounds of voting for city mayors. It's the local authority that became crucial in creating truly comfortable and civilized conditions of living in the cities, regions, districts and communities - the result of successful de-centralization reform", the Office stated.
The authority claimed that the central government is ready to cooperate with all representatives of the local power so as to create and maintain civilized living conditions all over Ukraine.
The Office also promised that certain violations observed by the law enforcers must be investigated, and the court should provide due reaction, too. There were no acts of interference in the process by either officials or bodies of state authority, the Office said.
