Political analyst Vitaly Portnikov in an interview with «Apostrof» stated that the procedure of possible impeachment of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko may be completed only after the expiration of his term of office.
Answering the question whether to intensify rallies for impeachment of the President in 2018, Portnikov said, «But it makes no difference.»
«Why are we talking about that doesn’t matter? After all, rallies are not for the impeachment of the President, and the adoption of a law that would declare the President’s impeachment. Incidentally, I believe that such legislation should be spelled out. I don’t think we should live in a country where there is no clear mechanism for impeachment of the President. He certainly must be,» continued political commentator.
He believes that the ex-President of Georgia and leader of the party «movement novih forces» of Mikhail Saakashvili, «it does not matter what the requirements put forward, it is important the result.»
«But if we return to the question of impeachment and a serious attitude to it, even if we assume that the law of impeachment is adopted, the procedure of impeachment will be completed after we completed the tenure of President Petro Poroshenko in office. Here’s the thing – it’s completely pointless, this was pointless. Because the impeachment process is not a single month goes on. It requires charging on specific issues, but it is not. No one is saying the President did so-and-so, therefore, it is necessary to impeach, and of the law of impeachment no. Then, as often happens in such cases, when populism prevails over reason, and when important process, not the result, it happens that let’s adopt the law on impeachment, and then find the charges that will declare impeachment» – said Portnikov.
12 Nov Saakashvili offered from December 3 to begin the process of «people’s impeachment» of President Poroshenko. His force held several marches «For impeachment.» Their stock is usually satisfied with protesters on Sunday.
17 Dec Saakashvili during the next March, said that the protesters organized the staff of the October Palace. The building came supporters of the policy, began clashes with security forces. According to the police of Kiev, the clashes at the October Palace injured 32 police officers. They got to hospital with poisoning unknown substance. In machardie said that injured 60 national guardsmen, 15 of them were hospitalized.
Saakashvili called the situation a provocation to discredit the peaceful protest. 19 Dec Saakashvili at a briefing in Kiev said that it will not encourage the Ukrainians to come out to protest during the Christmas and new year holidays.
