Verkhovna Rada Speaker Dmytro Razumkov believes that Ukraine already has all the necessary legislative framework for elections in Donbas, including in the temporarily occupied territories. Razumkov said this in a talk show ‘Confrontation’ on Newsone TV channel, Ukrinform reports.
"The elections (in Donbas, - 112 International) should be held according to Ukrainian law. In fact, the election law has been adopted, and it allows elections to be held in the temporarily occupied territories. I do not think that we need a separate law," - said the speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament.
He drew attention to a clause in the Minsk agreements that elections in the Donbas should be held under the Ukrainian law. He never specified what kind of law it should be.
Razumkov is sure that the current regulatory framework is enough to hold elections in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
Thus, the path for elections throughout the state is open, the chairman of the parliament summed up.
As we reported before, after the Oleksiy Honcharuk wiretapping scandal, the guards of Verkhovna Rada Chairman Dmytro Razumkov changed the rules of work.
