To ensure the effective work of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, heads of parliamentary factions need to stop their political PR, but focus on the discipline of people’s deputies and their presence in the plenary.
About this during the conciliation Council of leaders of factions and committees of the Verkhovna Rada, said MP from the “Udar”, the Chairman of the Committee on family matters, youth policy, sports and tourism Arthur Ward.
“The heads of parliamentary factions turned the conciliation Board into a platform for political PR. While the head of the committees legislative proposals tried and tested and always subject to report and defend the branch bills, heads of the factions from meeting to meeting, speaking with political slogans and more – after their performances demonstratively left the Conciliation Board and going to give briefings to the media. I don’t want to offend anyone, but I will say that over the past six months we have nothing new from the heads of the factions have not heard,” – said the MP.
In addition, Ward noted the need to ensure discipline of people’s deputies during plenary meetings and encouraged the leaders of the factions to restore order in fractions. “Ignoring their duties by the deputies often become the main cause of failure necessary for the state and society decisions. You want to finally put things in order in their factions and so on Tuesday and Thursday we had enough votes,” he said.
Ward also supported the proposal to cancel the break during plenary meetings from 12:00 to 12:30. “This break is useless! Lunch deputies after 14:00, and before that you need to work! We need, finally, to improve discipline in the Parliament and make it a productive meeting,” – said the MP.
