Voters hold rally due to ballots mixed up between constituencies in Novohrodivka, Donetsk region – OPORA.

In the city of Novohrodivka, Donetsk region, under the building of the city territorial election commission, a rally of voters is being held, demanding not to take into account the results of voting for candidates to the city council, the OPORA civic network said.

"Those people appealed to the leadership of Novohrodivka territorial election commission to take into account the situation that led to the confusion of ballot papers between electoral constituencies and finding out it during the voting, so that these ballot papers were recognized as not subject to counting, and the results of voting for candidates for the position of the head of the city and the deputies of the district council were taken into account," the OPORA civic network said in the statement.

Novohrodivka territorial election commission said that they had already submitted a relevant request to the Central Election Commission (CEC).

"We turned to the authorized agencies with statements, as well as for an explanation to the Central Election Commission. People gathered for the rally while waiting for official explanations whether to recognize the ballot papers as valid or not," head of the city territorial election commission Iryna Cherednychenko said.

Incumbent Mayor of Novohrodivka Liudmyla Biletska said that the law enforcement agencies and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) were notified of the situation with the mixed ballot papers.
