The Parliament, the Government and the President have to work on the issue of visa liberalization – Sotnyk

In fact, in the Parliament there are 17 bills relating to the implementation of technical conditions for introduction of visa-free regime.

This was reported by a deputy of the “Samopomich” faction, Olena Sotnyk, commenting on the Parliament’s being accused of failing the visa-free regime.

She stresses that in addition to these bills, the technical conditions for visa liberalization consist of a number of demands to the President, the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Government, and these demands must be completed by the end of November.

“Among those conditions there is, for example, the requirement to change the composition of the commission on electing the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor, as well as the requirement of resignation of the current Prosecutor General and his replacement by a person whom the society will trust,” – she said.

She also says that the government’s plan does not mention any of the bills regarding visa liberalization which were introduced in the Parliament three weeks ago.

“This means that the Government was unprofessionally preparing these documents at the last moment and provided the deputies with low quality bills. I urge the Government to work professionally, in a consensus, to aim at visa liberalization, not at the satisfaction of their own ambitions,” said Sotnyk.
