Ukraine: Congress conducts remote observation of local elections on 25 October

After receiving an invitation from the Ukrainian authorities, from 19 to 20 October the Congress will carry out a remote observation procedure for the local elections that will take place on 25 October. This new remote format has been introduced as a temporary procedure in exceptional situations, such as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, on the basis of Congress Resolution 455 (2020) adopted by the Statutory Forum as part of the broader debate on the Congress’ report on Local and Regional Elections in Major Crisis Situations.

The delegation comprises the Congress members represented on the Council for Democratic Elections/Venice Commission, including Stewart Dickson (United Kingdom, ILDG), Jos Wienen (Netherlands, PPC/CCE), Rosaleen O'Grady (Ireland, ILDG) and Vladimir Prebilic (Slovenia, SOC/G/PD). The team will be supported by Professor Markku Suksi, member of the Group of Independent Experts on the European Charter of Local Self-Government.
