Oleksandr Danchenko: Ukrainian Parliament must get rid of the legislative spam

As of December 1, 2016 there are 4,662 bills registered in the Verkhovna Rada. According to the representative of the Samopomich Union faction, Oleksandr Danchenko, such a number of legislative initiatives kills the really important and relevant laws.
“In the leading parliaments of the world, MPs’ or the committees’ activities are highly praised when there is 1 or 2 bills drafted and adopted through a year. In Ukraine, in order to consider all the registered bills (at least 30 minutes in the first reading, 45 minutes – in the second reading), we need more than 5,800 hours,” said the deputy.
Therefore, Oleksandr Danchenko is sure that the state is in a critical need of the reform of the Verkhovna Rada, “We must get rid of this legislative spam and create the opportunity for quality and really necessary laws to be passed. Otherwise, we will continue to stagnate.”
