Head of Government on CEC’s work: I hope that one of their first decisions will be elections appointment in AHs

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman expects one of the first decisions of the renewed Central Election Commission to be the date of elections in amalgamated hromadas, which are an integral part of decentralisation in Ukraine. He emphasised it on the air of central TV channels.

“It is important that the Verkhovna Rada, following the proposal of the President of Ukraine, formed a new composition of the Central Election Commission. Undeniably, a great deal of work of the President and the Parliament will be required to prepare for the elections. But there is a problem that needs to be solved immediately. It's about elections in AHs, where people want to be stronger.”

The Head of Government reminded that incapability of the CEC’s work actually blocked the process of elections and hromadas’ development, but this, according to Volodymyr Groysman, “is unacceptable”.

“I really hope that one of the first decisions will be the appointment of the election date in AHs. When people want to create comfortable living conditions, no one has the right to stop them,” said the Prime Minister.


On 20 September 2018, the Verkhovna Rada appointed 14 new members of the Central Election Commission. As expected, they will make an oath in the Verkhovna Rada today, on 3 October.

As the Prime Minister stressed, CEC’s work blocking and, consequently, impossibility of holding elections in hromadas threatened those positive developments that already exist in Ukraine. “This is not just elections’ termination. This is an attempt to stop one of the key reforms. And for me it's not just another change. I came to work in the Government for the sake of its introduction, and for its sake have I changed my life. I am ready to continue assuring leadership in decentralisation, but it is necessary to conduct this process at all stages,” noted Volodymyr Groysman.
