We already have a conceptual vision of how to improve legislation on local elections, - Vyacheslav Nehoda

The experts of the working group under MinRegion have developed a draft Concept on improvement of legislation on local elections.

This was announced by Vyacheslav Nehoda, First Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine, regarding the results of the discussion of the draft concept of improving the legislation on local elections in connection with the reform of local self-government, territorial organisation of power and administrative-territorial structure.

“We already have a coherent concept that shows the ways of legislative resolution of a number of issues: creation of an optimal system for the election of deputies of hromada, rayon and oblast councils, hromada leaders, determination of the number of local councils, reduction of the level of party affiliation of local representative bodies, improvement of administration of local elections, etc.,” said Vyacheslav Nehoda

According to him, the draft Concept was developed with the expectation that administrative-territorial reform will be carried out before the next local elections in autumn 2020, that is by this time capable hromadas and rayons will be created throughout the country.

“Today's discussion shows that some expert suggestions are still very debatable and require a compromise. Therefore, in the next few days, we will discuss them in a wider circle as part of the working group under MinRegion, and after that will make them public,” said Vyacheslav Nehoda.

The OSCE in Ukraine and Council of Europe Office in Ukraine provide technical and expert support in drafting the necessary draft laws.
