“Yesterday, the Committee on Local Government voted unanimously to hold the elections of the mayor and members of the council in Kyiv on June 2,” Svoboda Faction Leader Oleh Tiahnybok said at a briefing on Thursday.

As reported, on June 1, 2012, Leonid Chernovetsky resigned as Kyiv mayor. Kyiv City Council appointed Secretary of Kyiv City Council Halyna Hereha as acting mayor.

On July 19, 2012, Hereha asked the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, to issue an instruction on holding an early mayoral election.
