On Thursday, July 11, at 9:30 am, there will be an action outside the Verkhovna Rada for the adoption of the Electoral Code in the second reading. The political party Samopomich Union, whose members are among the authors of the document, will take part in the action.
“Our political force has consistently, since the beginning of 2015, defended the need for reform of electoral legislation, the elimination of the majority component, the elimination of voters bribing and the introduction of the formation of parliament on a proportional basis with open lists,” said Samopomich MP Ruslan Sydorovych.
According to the parliamentarian, on Thursday there will be a final battle for the adoption of open lists.
The lawmaker concludes: “We believe that all concerned citizens should mobilize, and just like they forced the Verkhovna Rada to adopt the Electoral Code in the first reading at the end of 2017, to force the Verkhovna Rada to adopt the Electoral Code in the second reading on July 11, 2019 and put an end to the majority-system elections in Ukraine.”
