Presently, Dykanka rayon is still one of the five rayons in Poltava Oblast where not a single AN has been established. For almost three years, the process has been hampered by the political ambitions of council deputies at different levels as well as by the discreet sabotage by the heads and deputies of hromadas. The situation started to change again in the winter this year, when the local government development centre in Poltava (established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and the MinRegion) initiated a new active phase of awareness-raising and advisory activities aimed to boost the decentralisation reform. Finally, it was agreed to begin the establishment of Dykanka AH which was supposed to unite almost all towns and villages in the rayon with the administrative centre in Dykanka. The members of the settlement council voted for the voluntary amalgamation with neighboring village hromadas. This decision was preceded by a corresponding initiative and public discussions. The idea was supported by three village hromadas (Andriivska, Velykobyduschanska and Dibrivska) which agreed to amalgamate on the basis of Dykanka. To settle all remaining formalities and to consult the residents of Dykanka, the legal advisor and experts of Poltava LGDC arrived to Dykanka at the final stage.
