This is what head of the Party of Regions faction at the Ukrainain parliament Olexander Yefremov is convinced of. Elections of Kyiv mayor, he said, can be held unscheduled, due to the fact that the previous Mayor Leonid Chernovetsky wrote a letter of his retirement the day before the end of its mandate. The Parliament still didn't make any decision on this issue.
The Party of Regions refused to vote before the announcement of the decision of the Constitutional Court. According to its ruling, the next local elections in the country should be held simultaneously in October of 2015, irrespective of what were the previous elections - regular or extraordinary. The opposition is pushing for early elections.
