The primaries in the DPR have no parallel in history.

It was announced by Elena Molchanova, the secretary of the Provisional Election Commission, at a press conference in Donetsk.

According to her, the Provisional Election Commission has noted a lot of interest from foreign and national media to the early voting in the DPR.

‘Representatives of the media are constantly asking us various questions and actively interested in the latest news about the technology and stages of the primaries. We have sent invitations to more than 500 editions of the foreign media to cover the primaries in the Republic. Today, 15 of them have responded and signed up,’ she said.

According to Elena Molchanova, the DPR authorities are waiting for activation of the media registration process closer to the date of the primaries, appointed on October 2nd. 

Also according to her, the Ukrainian media have not yet responded to the invitation from Donetsk.

‘Our preliminary vote is different from all the previous ones, because we do not have parties. It is public figures that are nominated, who feel their strength and the support of the people of Donetsk People's Republic,’ said the secretary of the Provisional Election Commission.
