Today, there was a working meeting of the “Samopomich” faction and its leader Andriy Sadovyi with the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Volodymyr Hroisman.
During the meeting, the participants agreed on the positions regarding voting for the new electoral law.
As noted by Chairman of the “Samopomich” faction Oleh Bereziuk, the MPs announced their readiness to vote for the new law on local elections, but in case of its quality improvement.
In particular, the faction insists on reducing the number of deputies of local councils, protection of ballots, restrictions on political advertising, banning electoral blocs and not holding elections in the occupied territories.
“The President assures that he and the Petro Poroshenko Bloc share these principles. Therefore, there is a great probability of a positive review of this issue,” stated the deputy.
