Denis Pushilin’s statement on election of Head of Republic and deputies of DPR People’s Council in 2018

The people are source of authority in the Donetsk People’s Republic and free elections are the highest expression of it. These principles are enshrined in the DPR Constitution, and therefore should and will be implemented in the upcoming elections this year.

Peculiarities, preparation procedure and conduct of elections determine corresponding laws of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The election date will be appointed by the People’s Council not later than 60 days before election day. But today we can say that the elections in the DPR will be held this autumn.

For our part, we will do everything to ensure that the will of citizens is passed in accordance with the current legislation and that the residents of the Republic determine who is worthy to represent their interests at the highest state posts.
