The draft law provides the opportunity to resolve the issue of the legal force of hromadas’ charter, cooperation of local self-government bodies and directly officials with civil society, to conduct various forms of participatory democracy while working with civil society. That is how Hennadii Zubko, Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine, commented on the Government's decision, that approved the draft law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Regarding the Charters of Hromadas".
"The document will provide an opportunity to strengthen the interaction between the local self-government bodies and civil society, as well as identify the list of issues that will operate in communications. Besides, the principles of transparency and public control in the activities of local self-government bodies are introduced," said Hennadii Zubko.
According to him, the draft law regulates the issue of participation of members of hromadas in the implementation of local self-government, as well as the issue of the relationship between self-government officials and civil society institutions.
"The document identifies significant innovations that provide legal guarantees to local self-government. In particular, it is envisaged to consolidate the principle according to which the hromada charter has the highest legal force in the system of acts of self-governing bodies of hromada. Compliance of all executive authorities, associations of citizens, enterprises, institutions and organisations, officials and those who permanently or temporarily reside there, with the charter will be ensured," Mr Zubko remarked.
According to him, the process of approval of the hromadas’ charter began in 2014. In accordance with the Concept of Local Self-Government Reforming, this point is constantly on the agenda of the Coordination Council under the President of Ukraine on work with civil society.
