The project was registered on 6 December. So, tomorrow, December 20 – last day of submission of the alternative bills from deputies», – stated in the message.

The authors of the bill indicated 30 people’s deputies: Oleg Barna, Sergei Rudyk, Andrew River, Artem Vitko, Andrew Sinkovich, Roman Mazola, Yuri Timoshenko, Vladimir Melnichenko, Anton Kisse, hwich, Meparishvili, Ivan Rybak, Andrey Vadatursky, Alexander Dekhtyarchuk, Ivan Knotweed, Ivan Melnychuk, Dmitry Lubinets, Sergei Valentinov Oleksandr Tretyakov, Andrey Lopushansky, Gregory Timis, Alexander Suprunenko, Yuliy Mamchur, Valentyn nychyporenko, Boryslav Rozenblat, Nicholas Lushniak, Konstantin Yarynich, Oleg Dmytrenko Mykola Kucher, Serhiy Kunitsyn, Anatoly Kuzmenko.

In the explanatory note to submitted to replace the bill States: «a party activity attracted not more than 3% of the population. The vast majority of the population does not want to engage in party activity, does not want to be members of any political parties due to the complete unbelief, lack of party responsibility.
