EPDE: Experts’ Discussion:

 Specific Problems of the Local Elections in Ukraine

Tuesday 27 October 2015, 13.00 – 14.30

Radisson Hotel, Yaroslaviv Val 22

The European Platform for Democratic Elections (EPDE) in cooperation with OPORA and the Committee of Voters of Ukraine cordially invites to an experts’ discussion on specific problems of the process of local elections in Ukraine. Arkadi Lubarev describes the challenges connected with the implementation of the newly adopted law on local elections. The doubtful non-elections in Mariupol and Krasnoarmyisk raise concerns on the perspectives for conducting elections in Eastern Ukraine and will be analysed by Steffen Halling. Anton Shekhovtsov provides an overview of the work of international election observation missions in Ukraine with a focus on those missions that do not adhere to internationally binding norms and procedures (“fake observation”). Olga Ajvasovska will give an assessment of the quality of these elections according to the observation through the Ukrainian citizens’ election observers from OPORA.
