“When will the elections take place? I think on October 5 or 12,”
Sobolev said on the air of Hromadske TV Channel on July 31 night.
According to him, the elections should be held according to a new law
on election of MPs, and thus the parliament needs to adopt such a law
or amend the current law on elections of MPs during its next plenary
week scheduled for August 12-15. The Batkivschyna faction leader noted
that the elections needed to be held according to proportional election
system with open lists. “We clearly meet all the deadlines of election
campaign,” Sobolev said.
