The Ukrainian parliament is calling for regional and local elections on October 25

The Ukrainian parliament has scheduled regional and local elections for October 25th this Wednesday, despite the armed conflict in the east of the country and the coronavirus pandemic.

A total of 326 of the 450 members of the Rada voted for this campaign, well above the 226 that the Ukrinform news agency required.

Article 141 of the Ukrainian Constitution stipulates that elections to elect regional and local representatives must be held every five years on the last Sunday in October, so there is little scope for changing the date.

These elections take place in the midst of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, which is why the parliament has decided not to hold elections in some areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk provinces controlled by the pro-Russian separatists.
