Location: Kyiv, 28 Dryzhby narodiv boulevard.
Event: There are intentions to deprive the Samopomich Union political party of part of the state funding. Meeting of the National Agency for Corruption Prevention.
During its meeting the National Agency for Corruption Prevention will consider the issue of granting public funding to the Samopomich Union political party for its statutory activities in accordance with item 1 of the first paragraph of the Article 17-5 of the Law of Ukraine “On Political Parties in Ukraine”, adopted in 2016.
“Samopomich Union is the only party that complied with the “gender quotas” rule, because following the results of the election, the number of persons of the same sex who were elected deputies comprised no more than 2/3.
According to the law, these two-thirds must be there exactly “following the results of the election.”
For a long time the National Agency for Corruption Prevention could not make the decision due to the fact that as of today the proportion has changed since Oksana Syroid became the Vice-Speaker of the Parliament and is not part of the faction anymore, and some individuals have been excluded from the faction.
“Samopomich” considers this position to be erroneous, and calls on the National Agency for Corruption Prevention, despite the enormous pressure from the top, to adopt a legitimate decision on granting public funding for the statutory activities of the party.
