Totally, over 131,000 law enforcers will follow the law and order on election day. 47,000 of them will guard the polling stations; over 10,000 will patrol the streets.
“The special attention of the police is paid to the district election commissions, which get the election documents. Moreover, starting from today, the official foreign observers come to Ukraine. Then the police units will be closer to the place of arrival and stay of the delegations. One more task of police within the election process is the delivery of the election documents from the district to local electoral commissions and backward after the vote count,” the message said.
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 funding 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.
