“Samopomich” welcomes the coalition decision to ban blocs, but believes that it is not enough to improve the draft law on local elections. This was stated by Chairman of the “Samopomich” Union faction Oleh Bereziuk during the coordination board of the Verkhovna Rada.
The MP stresses that the law on local elections should be adopted this week, and it is important, in addition to banning electoral blocs, to reduce the number of deputies of local councils and limit political advertising.
“To spend hundreds of thousands on pointless videos and billboards during the war is immoral and makes no sense. We therefore ask the coalition to make a tough decision and give up on senseless advertising,” said the MP.
In addition, he says that now at election district 205 rehearsals of rigging in the upcoming local elections are being conducted.
“Last week with the participation of the prosecutor’s office the submissions for the members of the election commissions from the candidates were withdrawn. We asked the law enforcement agencies to deal with this situation,” said the deputy.
