On Sunday 31st October 2010 the Ukraine electorate will be given their chance to vote in the local elections. These are the elections for Mayors in major cities, local town/village councils and also Oblast (Regional) Councils.
With many business people complaining about the proposed introduction of a new 'Tax Code' in Ukraine, these elections will be interesting. It will be a test of the current popularity of the Party of the Regions and a reflection on the new President.
The BBCU does not support any of the political parties in Ukraine. We like to concentrate on business issues only. However, the pace of recovery in Ukraine is still very slow and we do not need any further setbacks which might contribute to keeping investors away.
