Vice Prime Minister-Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine Hennadiy Zubko expects that the Parliament will support the laws on decentralization this autumn.
He announced this at a briefing on September 5, the Government's portal reported.
According to the Vice Prime Minister, this is a key reform carried out within the country. The approval of these laws is much expected by our European partners, experts, and most importantly – by ordinary Ukrainian citizens that demonstrate support for this reform by creating communities.
"Now we have over 10 bills that are awaiting to be adopted in the first or second reading. They were elaborated to address such issues as the voluntary association of territorial communities; transferring payment for providing administrative services to the budgets of the united territorial communities (UTC); the empowerment of communities to dispose of the lands beyond the settlements; the elections of prefects and others. People need the parliamentary support of decentralization. We are looking forward to the productive session of the Verkhovna Rada," Zubko said.
