On 5 February 2018, three local councils of the Kirovohrad Oblast – the Nova Praha settlement council, as well as the Sharivka and Pantaziyivka village councils – made a final decision to amalgamate into a single hromada with a centre in Nova Praha.
Interestingly enough, this is an amalgamation of village councils of two different rayons, which rarely happens in Ukraine. The Sharivka and Nova Praha councils belong to Oleksandriya Rayon, while Pantaziyivka is located in the Znamyanka Rayon.
“The deputies of the mentioned councils made the final decision to amalgamate into a single hromada with its cente in Nova Praha, said Oleh Yaremenko, director of the Kirovohrad Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion.
It is noteworthy that three sessions of the abovementioned councils took place on the third anniversary of the adoption of the Law of Ukraine “On Voluntary Amalgamation of Hromadas”. The next step of the Kirovohrad Oblast State Administration will be to send the documents collected in these councils to the Central Electoral Commission for the appointment of the first elections in the new amalgamated hromada.
