Head of the Central Election Commission Tetiana Slipachuk stated about information attacks, which aim at her and members of the commission, as Ukrainian News reported.
“Now the fakes and provocations appear more often, and they aim to discredit me as the head of the Central Election Commission and other members of the commission and even their families. All these information attacks, personal pressure aim only to destabilize the work of the Central Election Commission and cause the mistrust of the Ukrainians to the commission and its leadership and things it does,” she stated.
Slipachuk also noted that the number of people involved in the activity of some political parties tried to hold illegal “consultations” with her and persuade to the decisions in their favor.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky officially dissolved the Verkhovna Rada and appointed the snap elections for July 21. The Cabinet of Ministers should provide the financing of the elections.
On June 11, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine has begun the consideration of the case on the parliament’s dissolution.
On May 24, the electoral process kicked off in Ukraine.
According to the Ukrainian legislation, the electoral process of snap elections begins on the next day after the President’s decree on early termination of the mandate of Verkhovna Rada and appointment of the new elections is published. Therefore, the electoral process starts on May 24, without the Central Commission making any decisions.
