There were not enough votes to push through the law which would allow appointing “the right person” to the position of Prosecutor General.
This is due to the fact that “Samopomich” MPs filmed with their mobile phones the sectors of the Opposition bloc and Revival, the deputies of which intended to start “piano voting”.
Not only was the presidential bill put to the vote with violation of the regulations, but it also aims to make legitimate the appointment of Yuriy Lutsenko, the leader of Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction, to the position of Prosecutor General.
Appointment of Prosecutor General by the criterion of loyalty to the Head of state will completely destroy the reforming of the prosecutor’s office. “Samopomich” still insists and will do everything to ensure that the post of Prosecutor General is occupied by a professional selected on the basis of an open competition and with involvement of the public.
