According to the LPR Central Election Commission, the Mir Luganshchine (Peace for Luhansk) party is leading in parliamentary elections in the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Luhansk (LPR) with 69.18 percent of the votes.

LUHANSK, November 3 (RIA Novosti) – The Mir Luganshchine (Peace for Luhansk) party is leading in parliamentary elections in the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Luhansk (LPR), the LPR Central Election Commission has announced.

"As of now, Mir Luganshchine has gathered 69.18 percent of the votes," the head of the election commission said at a press conference Sunday.

A total of 27.8 percent of the votes have been counted so far in the LPR.

Three parties were running for parliamentary seats in the Luhansk main legislative body, known as the People's Council. They are Igor Plotnitsky's (acting head of government in Luhansk) Mir Luganshchine (Peace for Luhansk), the Luhansk economic Union and the People's Union.

On Sunday, voters in Donetsk and Luhansk regions elected the regional leaders and legislative bodies.

Kiev and several western countries said they would not recognize the results of this vote and repeatedly called it illegitimate. Russia, on the contrary, has expressed its intention to recognize the elections and emphasized that not recognizing would run counter to the Minsk protocol and undermine efforts to reach peace settlement in the country.
