Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Dmytro Razumkov predicts that the turnout in local elections will be 55-65%.
“As practice shows, the turnout in local elections is slightly less than in parliamentary or presidential ones, but it will remain give or take 55-65%,” Razumkov said at a press conference in Kharkiv on Thursday.
At the same time, according to him, given the fact that elections to territorial communities will be held in Ukraine under the new system, the interest of voters may be higher.
On July 30, a resolution of the Verkhovna Rada came into force on the appointment of elections to local authorities for Sunday, October 25, this year.
It is envisaged that on October 25 “regular elections of deputies of local councils and village, settlement, town heads” will take place, except for the annexed Crimea and the occupied territories of Donbas.
