President withdrew draft amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine on decentralisation of power

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a meeting with the deputy heads of the faction of the Servant of the People political party, which constitutes the parliamentary majority in the Verkhovna Rada.

The parties discussed the issues related to the final stage of decentralisation reform. The participants noted the consensus on the strategic objectives of this reform - the creation of a system of capable local hromadas in Ukraine. The development of local self-government must be combined with effective constitutional mechanisms protecting state sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens.

The President and MPs agreed that amending the Constitution on decentralisation reform would require detailed discussion and consultations with representatives of all parties.

Following the meeting, the Head of State decided to withdraw his draft law "On Amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine (on Decentralisation of Power)" (registration number 2598) and submit it for revision.
