Lawsuits appealing against voluntary amalgamation or accession of hromadas will be classified into categories of urgent administrative cases to be considered under abridged procedure, within a month term. In this way, we will stop the practice of deliberate litigation of hromadas’ amalgamation process courts, - commented Hennadii Zubko, Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine, on the governmentally approved draft law regarding hromadas’ rights protection in the process of voluntary amalgamation and accession.
The draft law amends the Law “On Voluntary Amalgamation of Hromadas” and the Code of Administrative Justice of Ukraine.
“Over the years of the reform, we have repeatedly made sure that decentralisation opponents, hiding behind the interests of hromada residents, try to stop the reform that does not appeal to those who lose political or financial influence on the territory, where capable AHs are formed.

Thus, after the Parliament adopts the draft law, prepared by MinRegion, it will not be possible to delay the process of appointing, preparing and conducting elections in hromadas. This will allow to execute the constitutional rights of Ukrainians and their aspirations for the development of their hromadas,” said Hennadii Zubko.
