We need to adopt legislation on investigating the activities of the President and on his impeachment – Yehor Soboliev

Lack of legislation regulating the process of impeachment of the President leads to the fact that people resort to street methods. This was stated from the parliamentary rostrum by MP from the “Samopomich Union faction, chairman of the anti-corruption committee, Yehor Soboliev.

“We can talk a lot about the need to impeach the President, but the situation in Ukraine remains the same: the law does not allow impeaching the President. Therefore, all the Presidents of Ukraine were kicked off with the help of Maidan,” he said.

“We need to switch to civilized solutions: to adopt a law on temporary investigation commissions. The first such commission should investigate whether the President of Ukraine conducts business in the scale the journalists write he does, whether he violates the Constitution of Ukraine and the requirements of the society,” added the MP.

“Such a law on temporary investigation commissions should be the impetus for a more important law, which, as we think, could destroy kleptocracy. We are talking about a new system of parliamentary elections. For the Parliament not to be elected in the districts, where oligarchs dominate, where people are bribed, where money rules everything, but to be elected by open lists of the parties. We are against early elections, but we stand for new elections which can give people new representatives and we want to restore order in the state together with people.
