Verkhovna Rada Committee supported draft law that makes impossible to delay the hromadas amalgamation process through courts

The Parliamentary Committee on State Building, Regional Policy and Local Self-Government recommended the Verkhovna Rada to adopt in the first reading a government draft law on the rights protection of hromadas in the process of hromadas voluntary amalgamation and accessing (№10240).

“For four years of the process of hromadas amalgamation, we have had dozens of lawsuits that kept back the AH establishment. Most of these claims were unfounded, but they did their job - the amalgamation of some hromadas was blocked for months and even years. Hromadas lost precious time. We should not allow this in future. Cases should be dealt with quickly and, if there is an unsubstantiated claim, it should not interfere with the development of the hromadas,” commented Vyacheslav Nehoda, first Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services.

The draft law provides that cases of appeal against hromadas decisions on amalgamation or accession will have a clear mechanism for consideration and will be categorized as urgent administrative cases - they will last no more than a month. Also, only citizens living in these hromadas will have the right to appeal hromada decisions. To appeal to the court, they will have only 10 days from the day the decision is made by the hromada.

As it was reported, the Government approved a draft law prepared by MinRegion that will make impossible any delays in the process of appointment, preparation and conducting elections in hromadas.
