Political gambling jeopardises continuation of decentralisation process, - Volodymyr Groysman

Continuation of decentralisation as the most effective reform of the Ukrainian Government and strengthening of local self-government are jeopardised due to political gambling and reluctance of individual leaders to work in the interests of people, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during an “Hour of Questions to the Government” in the Verkhovna Rada.

“In 2014 I became the leader of changes and I emphasise that now I will also ensure leadership and movement forward,” stresses the Head of Government.

He emphasised that now is the time for constitutional changes that will define and consolidate the processes of strengthening the powers and responsibilities of local authorities.

“We are now preparing and will propose a new stage of decentralisation to the Verkhovna Rada,” said the Prime Minister.

At the same time, he appealed to MPs to provide examples of hindering hromadas’ amalgamation.

“It is unacceptable, when people amalgamated – in order to increase their budget, salaries – and someone impedes them. We will protect the interests of people. Give us the list of those hindering (amalgamation), we will pass the submission to the President with request to dismiss them,” added Volodymyr Groysman.
