There are no registered bills in the Ukrainian Parliament on the local elections in Donbas. Dmytro Razumkov, the Speaker reported that on the evening show at 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"There's no law about the elections in Donbas. If we're talking about the election law, the voting in Donbas should take place - and everyone said so, the President and me, and the MPs; they should take place under the laws of Ukraine, because it is the Ukrainian territory, and these are the elections to the local authorities, which are part of our country. So there should be no separate law", Razumkov said.
Previously, President Zelensky claimed that the voting in Donbas would take place in autumn 2020 - along with the nationwide elections.
Razumkov also said that there are currently no reasons to disband the Ukrainian Parliament. Earlier, the Ukrainian parliament preliminarily approved the decision to reduce the number of MPs from 450 to 300. The lawmakers also offer to add to the Constitution the norm of the proportional electoral system. This foresees that there will be no voting in single-constituency districts. Now, the Constitution Court will be considering these changes. The respective bill has yet to score 300 votes in the Parliament in order to be passed.
