OPORA insists on a balanced CEC
OPORA welcomes the President’s submission of new CEC candidates and insists on formation of a politically balanced election commission. The presence of a candidate from the AUU Batkivshchyna in the submission demonstrates the readiness of political subjects for a wide compromise in the appointment of CEC members.
OPORA calls on the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the President of Ukraine to continue active consultations towards the agreement concerning the inclusion of candidates from each faction and group without exception. In particular, the President’s representative in Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Iryna Lutsenko has announced that the President is ready to include an additional candidate representing the Opposition Bloc faction after the faction chooses its top priority candidate. Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, to our mind, should appoint a new membership of the CEC with consideration of candidates from all 6 factions and 2 groups of MPs.
