The Head of the Central Election Commission (CEC) said that the CEC will do everything to make the steps that are necessary for the electoral process.
In case of the announcement of early parliamentary elections, the Central Election Commission will be ready to hold them.
This was reported by the Chairman of the CEC Tatyana Slipachuk.
“I think if the decision is made on all legal grounds, then we have little chance of not being ready. I would rather raise the question of how all the necessary things that need to be implemented in order for them to take place will also be promptly resolved, because we have questions of legislation regulating [ed. – the holding of elections], the question of the timing and procedure for holding public procurement, which have a very important impact, and which in the parliamentary elections will be a much greater problem than [elections] at the presidential level,” she said.
According to Slipachuk, this is a complex issue, but the CEC, within its authority, will do everything to make the steps that are necessary for the electoral process.
Earlier, the winner of the second round of presidential elections Volodymyr Zelensky said that if he wins the election, he plans to submit a law on impeachment, and he will think about dissolving the Verkhovna Rada [ed. – Ukrainian Parliament].
On April 22, the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy stated that there are no legal grounds for dissolving the parliament now, and after May 27 they cannot arise.
On April 23, MP Valeriy Pisarenko, MP from the Vidrodzhennia (Revival) party, began collecting signatures for the resignation of Parliament Speaker Andriy Parubiy.
Parliamentary factions “Popular Front” and “Petro Poroshenko Bloc” argue that the holding of early elections to the Verkhovna Rada is illegal and should be held in October.
