Earlier, the Parliament approved changes to the Electoral Code of Ukraine.

The law significantly decreases the bids for elections. The proportional representation electoral system imposed in the cities with at least 10,000 population. A person may run for elections as head of a village, settlement, and city as independent candidate.

The snap local elections, midterm elections, first, extra elections will be held twice a year – on the last Sunday of March and the last Sunday of October. In other words, all local elections that are not snap will be held on the same day in spring or in autumn in all settlements.
