LUGANSK, November 6 (Lugansk Media Centre) - First 300,000 Lugansk People’s Republic residents taking part in the November 11 parliamentary and Head of the Republic elections are entitled to a free Lugacom top-up card, mobile operator first deputy director Eduard Yegorov said at a press briefing at the Lugansk Media Centre.

“The promo will start at 8:00 a.m. on November 11,” Yegorov said. "The residents who come to voting stations and cast ballots will get free top-up cards worth 100 rubles.”

Lugacom is carrying out the promo to thank the customers who have been with us all this difficult time, and we want to help a bit to reach a benchmark following completion of the main network development stage, he added.

Lugacom promotion personnel are easily identified by their uniforms with the company's logo and Lugacom flags at each voting station. You just need to come up to our representatives to collect your 100-ruble card. It’s as simple as that,” the executive said adding that everybody was invited to join the action.

The contact  information is available on the CEC website. Details are provided by the Lugacom Call Centre, the company website and its Vkontakte and Odnosklassniki social media pages, as well as customer service centres, Yegorov added.

On 18 June 2015, the Republic’s Telecom and Communications Ministry reported the launching of new republican mobile operator Lugacom; the sale of basic cell phone plans began at LPR post offices in early September. In April 2017, the number of Lugacom active subscribers reached 150,000 and in late November, it increased to nearly 400,000. Earlier, Yegorov said that the number of Lugacom customers had increased by more than ten-fold over three years of its existence.

Lugacom monthly fee for customers is 50 rubles.

On September 7, LPR lawmakers passed the resolution setting November 11, 2018 as the date for parliamentary and head of the Republic elections. On September 6,  acting LPR Head Leonid Pasechnik signed the parliament-approved bills amending the LPR Provisional Basic Law (Constitution) and certain election law which extended the term of office for the Head of the Republic and parliamentarians from four to five years starting from the next election.

After verification of the documents and support lists, the CEC registered four candidates for the country’s top post, as well as the parliament candidate lists of the social movements Mir Luganschine and Lugansk Economic Union (LES).
