This would remove the debate on numbers and quotas.
Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy suggested to change the whole composition of the Central election Commission, and not just 13 members.
He said this on Tuesday at a forum Reanimation package of Reforms.
“The renewal of the composition of the Central election Commission is an issue which in my opinion should be put in the agenda without delay. I expect that next Thursday the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine will pass to the consideration of the composition of the Central election Commission,” he said.
“I will offer certain approaches and perhaps even new approaches. Because after the decision of the CEC, which actually stopped the elections in local communities, I had an idea about a complete update of the CEC. This would remove discussions about numbers and quotas,” – said paruby.
Recall that in the current composition of the CEC, there are only two of the 15 member whose term of office has not expired. Oleg Didenko and Catherine Magnitsky.
Candidates for the posts of new members of the Central election Commission was submitted by the President on 5 February 2018, but deputies still are unable to set them. The President introduced the 13 vacancies 14 candidates. Thus the fraction of the Opposition bloc is not represented by any candidate.
July 5, during the rating voting, the question about the dismissal and appointment of members of the CEC supported only 189 deputies. The failure of the Rada to vote for a change of CEC members to do with a fear that most of the new composition will be controlled by the President of Petro Poroshenko.
