Savchenko is running at 51st district (frontline Zaitseve town); however, she believes that “the district is not limited with Zaitseve, Maiorske, Zhovanka but continues in Horlivka and other occupied territories” so she is going to visit it with a speaking tour. Savchenko explains that she got one pass and now she is waiting for permission from the Security Service of Ukraine, which she received in 2016.
“We ordered a permission for three candidates – Savchenko Vira, Protorchenko Tetiana (Deputy Chairman of Party), and Nadia Savchenko, and we have to wait for ten days,” Savchenko said.
Besides, she added she does not understand why other candidates for election to parliament do not get the permissions and do not come to the citizens of occupied territories.
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 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.
