The Draft Law on the Status of a Village Headman have been Prepared for the Final Voting in the Parliament

On 15 November 2016, the Verkhovna Rada (Parliament) Committee on State Construction, Regional Policy and Local Self-Government recommended to the Parliament to pass draft law No. 4742 "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine (Regarding the Status of a Village and Town Head)" in the second reading and as a whole.

That draft law sets forth the status of a headman more precisely by determining dimensional boundaries of his/ her activity, terms of reference, grounds and procedures for the early termination of powers, guarantees of activity, etc.

The draft law was passed in the first reading on 8 September this year.

It should be reminded that the Ministry of Regional Development and non-governmental experts consider the draft law to be of high priority and that it should be passed still at the current session of the Parliament.
