At the meeting of the faction «Block of Petro Poroshenko» Yuriy Lutsenko assured that nobody will tell you what to do in the Prosecutor General of Ukraine. This broadcast of «Prime Evening» on TV channel «112 Ukraine», said MP from the faction «Block of Petro Poroshenko» Mustafa Nayem.
«I was on the morning of the faction and I want to clarify something. Mr. Lutsenko said openly that he was offered the post of attorney General. He agreed to this proposal. He will be nominated on the proposal, he said that too,» said the MP.
Moreover, according to him, Lutsenko told what he intended to do to the Prosecutor’s office. «At least what I remember — Lutsenko said that the Prosecutor’s office will no longer be any «gathering» of deputies, which will meet with the investigators. He promised that the Prosecutor General’s office will not engage in repression… And he said that no one will indicate to him what to do in the Prosecutor’s office. And he doesn’t see his future, if GPU will not be a continuation of the values of the Maidan. This is what the Lord said Lutsenko on the faction and what has been taken very positively,» concluded Nye.
A bill authorizing a person without legal training to occupy the post of attorney General was not adopted by Parliament, in particular, due to the fact that the faction «block of Petro Poroshenko» gave an insufficient number of votes for him. This was on the TV channel «112 Ukraine» said MP from the «popular front» Anton Gerashchenko.
According to him, now to accept a specified document, you need to re-register the draft law with similar content.
«On the procedure you now need to re-register a bill of similar content. The initiative that this bill was passed, was at BPP, it is their initiative was to give the opportunity to Yury Lutsenko, which today does not meet the requirements, which imposes the law on the Prosecutor to become attorney General. So in the near future they will have to decide to either re-make such a bill with a new number registration, or to refuse such a procedure», — said Gerashchenko.
He stressed that the faction «popular front» gave the most votes for the bill.
«Why not enough votes? We, as members of the coalition, confirmed its position, voted, gave 75 votes from the NF. But, unfortunately, the PPB has given enough votes and the bill has not passed,» — said Gerashchenko.
«I am opposed to the violation of the rules and I believe that all were taken in the framework of the law. As for what we have today is in Parliament, then the law is often overshadowed by issues of political necessity,» summed up the MP.
Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada will try to gain votes for the law on the reform of the General Prosecutor’s office the other day. This was stated by Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Oksana Syroid.
«Given the fact that on the website, we see that the law is not rejected, but simply not garnered sufficient votes — so I have a feeling that this bill will attempt to gain votes in some other day that, unfortunately, we have seen in Parliament more than once. The situation is humiliating, to be honest. She does not honor any reform of the procuracy, which all declare, either personally to Mr Lutsenko. I respect him as a politician, he is not worthy of such promotion to the post», she said.
Recall, the Verkhovna Rada failed in the first reading the bill on the General Prosecutor’s office, provisions which do not exclude the possibility of appointment to the post of attorney General of persons not having a legal education. Voted for the bill twice, the first time the initiative gained 224 votes, the second – 221. The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has postponed a working visit to the UK, in particular, in connection with the situation around the election of a new Prosecutor General.
As reported, the head of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy said that Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko is considering the post of Prosecutor General only one candidate – Yury Lutsenko.
