The “Samopomich” Union faction continues to block the parliamentary rostrum demanding to put to vote the draft law on early elections in Kryvyi Rih. The reasons for this decision were explained by a member of the “Samopomich” Union, the Chairman of the Committee on Combating Corruption, Yehor Soboliev.
“Unfortunately, the “Samopomich” faction was forced to block the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada. We’ve resorted to all the peaceful and civilized methods. We have spent hundreds of hours of negotiations with the leaders of the parliamentary factions and the leadership of the parliament seeking for a very simple, European solution – to call special elections in Kryvyi Rih. Unfortunately, the Parliament has no political will to do this,” he said.
“We offer to act in a civilized way and pass the laws that would restore justice. We need to show people that there are reasons to believe in the government. Let Kryvyi Rih have the elections with the participation of observers from Ukraine, OSCE, our international partners; this is a European way out,” said the MP.
“If the agreement is not reached, people will be forced to resort to street methods,” warns the MP.
