On 18 November, 2020, Mr. Pierre Peytier, Deputy Head of the ENEMO Mission to Ukraine for the Local Elections 2020 conducted a meeting with Ms. Alina Zagoruiko, Member of Ukrainian Parliament, Deputy Chairwoman of the Committee on the Organization of State Power, Local Self-Government, Regional Development and Urban Planning, Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Elections, Referendums and Other Forms of Direct Democracy.
This meeting was a great opportunity to discuss the main issues and complications of the new electoral system and changes in the Election Code as well as the difficulties of the vote tabulation and allocation of the seats. Moreover, it was emphasized that anti-COVID measures on the polling stations were inconsistently applied all over Ukraine since the local government bodies were overburdened by the election preparation process. Additionally, Ms. Zagoruiko has highlighted that more resources should be allocated to the voters education campaign before the next elections and the criminal responsibility for the violation of the transparent voting procedure should be clearly communicated.
