According to the Deputy of the city Council, the results of the last parliamentary elections, the Verkhovna Rada passed the people who were in power during authoritarian-oligarchic regime of Yanukovych and his cronies.

«Instead of real reform again propose unpopular changes and the decline in the living standards of ordinary citizens, but the oligarchs and thieves and further enriched while in power», — he said.

«However, unfortunately, many of the faction is not ready to take this step. The adoption of this law will reduce the level of tension in the Parliament and among the public. And this Parliament will be able to really work for the welfare and benefit of the people, creating a proper civil society and rule of law, the necessary, system and quality reforms. In our opinion, extraordinary elections to the Verkhovna Rada today is not right in our country, because most of the territory is under occupation by the Russian aggressor», — the document says.

«We demand from the Parliament for urgent adoption of a qualitatively new law of Ukraine, which will regulate the conduct of parliamentary elections by open lists and which will not allow in the only legislative body of the state oligarchic and anti-Ukrainian forces», — the statement reads.

Previously Poroshenko has said that in any case will not allow early parliamentary elections at this stage, since this requires six months of total inaction and populism.
