The Law on Voluntary Accession of Communities has Become Effective

On 18 March 2017, the official newspaper of the Verkhovna Rada (Parliament) of Ukraine "Holos Ukrainy" published the Law of Ukraine "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine (Regarding the Voluntary Accession of Communities)" (Draft Law No. 4772 ). Consequently, the Law has officially become effective.

It is a reminder that the Law simplifies the procedure for a voluntary amalgamation of territorial communities, vests the communities with the right of acceding, under a simplified procedure, to an already amalgamated community. It will facilitate the establishment of actually capable communities in accordance with the approved Long-Term Plans and in compliance with the Methodology of Establishment of Capable Territorial Communities.

The amendments, in particular, determine the conditions, the fulfilment of which allows a newly established territorial community being deemed as a capable one. Such community should be established around a centre specified in the Long-Term Plan of Formation of Territories of the Communities in the Oblast (Region), whereas not less than half of the number of inhabitants provided for in the Long-Term Plan should be living in it. Each subsequent territorial community will accede to such community under simplified procedures. Also, elections of members of the council of the amalgamated community shall be held in the acceded territorial communities, whereas election of the head of the amalgamated community shall not be held. Thus, representatives from all territories will be in the council of the newly established community.

It is a reminder that the President of Ukraine signed the Law on 17 March
