The Parliament of Ukraine should fully involve internally displaced persons and labor migrants in the electoral process. This was said at a briefing by MEP Rebecca Harms, according to RBC-Ukraine.

“After the meeting with the Electoral Commission, we would like to recommend parliament to pass laws that will include internally displaced persons and labor migrants in the electoral process. This is necessary to allow all Ukrainians to vote. We also recommend applying a gender quota during parliamentary elections,” said Harms.

In August of this year, the Supreme Court decided that internally displaced persons do not have the right to vote in local elections.

Later it was reported that they will be able to vote in parliamentary and presidential elections without a certificate of the need to change their place of residence.

We recall, the presidential and parliamentary elections in Ukraine will be held in 2019: in the spring and autumn.
