143 united territorial communities across Ukraine hosted elections on Sunday; they took place in most of the regions, as part of the ongoing reform of local governance in Ukraine. Almost a hundred of high-ranked officials were elected as local governors in towns and villages across the country. OPORA, the non-governmental network of independent supervisors over elections, reported that.
Minor violations were reported in several regions; specifically, in Talne, Cherkasy region (central Ukraine), a Russian national was not allowed voting, despite being officially registered there.
According to Hennadiy Zubko, Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister, the elections are necessary to reinforce local governance mechanisms in the country.
Previously, December 11, elections of deputies of town and village councils took place all over Ukraine.
