When creating territorial election commissions, the authorities strictly adhere to the quota – a third of the commission members should represent the public. However, it's true only on paper. In reality, that all of that "public representatives" hold senior positions at the local level.

Rechytsa district election commission was formed on December 26. It is composed of 13 members, seven of whom have worked in the district commission in the previous elections to the House of Representatives.
