MinRegion insists that local elections-2020 should take place on a new territorial basis

Local elections in October 2020 should take place on a new territorial basis and on conditions of coverage of the whole territory of Ukraine by amalgamated hromadas, said Hennadii Zubko, Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine, during the meeting with the Prime Minister of Ukraine regarding implementation of the Concept for the Reform of Local Self-Government and Territorial Organisation of Power.

"We have set clear goals and objectives for the further implementation of the local self-government reform by 2020. But we have to strat fulfilling them already now. Among the top priorities is the adoption by the end of the year of the Law No.8051 "On the Principles of Administrative-Territorial Structure of Ukraine", the maximum stimulation of further amalgamation of hromadas or accession, in particular, to the cities of oblast significance. In 2019 the task is to hold elections to the Verkhovna Rada and elections in the last voluntarily amalgamated hromadas simultaneously, with the parallel adoption of the administrative decision on hromadas’ amalgamation according to the perspective plans. This will allow to form perspective plans for hromadas’ amalgamation with complete coverage of Ukraine’s territory by AHs,” noted Hennadii Zubko.

According to him, implementation of this complex of measures will allow to consolidate rayons within the existing oblasts and to allocate respective powers between the authorities of the basic, rayon and oblast levels in 2019. By the end of 2020 there should be a complete institutional reorganisation of executive authorities in the consolidated rayons.
