It is necessary to continue forming hromadas, holding elections and strengthening territories, - Head of Government on continuation of decentralisation

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman considers that the decentralisation reform is irreversible, and now it is necessary to stimulate the process of hromadas’ amalgamation, holding elections there and, hence, strengthening the territory development opportunities. The Head of Government said this during “An Hour of Questions to the Government” in the Verkhovna Rada.

He stressed that those transformations, that have already taken place in the regions, are quite noticeable. And most mayors and village heads are actively using decentralisation tools.

“I agree that it is necessary to continue amalgamation process, hold elections. As a result, hromadas will become fully capable,” said Volodymyr Groysman. “I have set up a working group to update the Concept of Local Self-Government Development. We need to reach amendments to the Constitution (to fix the reform).”

Separately, Volodymyr Groysman added that there are rayons in Ukraine with no AHs formed so far. “We have 99 rayons with not a single AH. I have instructed to submit the list of irresponsible heads of administrations that are not capable of creating a new quality of life for people. We will appeal to the President with a proposal to dismiss such leaders,” the Head of Government said.
