On October 25 and November 15, 2015, Ukraine held Local Council and mayoral elections in all territories except in and around the Russian-backed separatist-controlled territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblast and Russia-occupied Crimea and Sebastopol. The local elections were administered by Territorial Election Commissions (TEC), members of which, under the current Local Election Law, are appointed by political parties. The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) visited polling stations throughout the election days in Kyiv and surrounding oblasts with special guests and organized an Election Day guest program. In this video, IFES Senior Program Officer Yuliya Shypilova discusses the 2015 local elections and provides recommendations for producing more democratic changes in Ukraine.
