The purpose of these draft laws is to improve the legal regulation of the mechanisms of local democracy and charter rulemaking of hromadas.

Taking into account the affinity of the legal regulation subjects of the mentioned legislative initiatives, considering viewpoints of the Ukrainian MPs – members of the Committee, representatives of central executive authorities, all-Ukrainian associations of local self-government bodies, and non-governmental organisations, the Committee concluded on relevance of establishment of a Working Group of the Committee on the identification of the ways of reforming Ukrainian legislation in the local democracy domain.
