Ukraine’s Deputy Speaker: Judiciary reform in Ukraine has been long awaited
People have been expecting these changes for decades, Oxana Syroid says
The Ukrainian official said this in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Since we mentioned respective changes in the Constitution, I can say that people spent decades fighting for many of them. In particular, it saves 700 judges the trouble, as they expect assignment for quite a long time. The Parliament never had enough political will to assign them all”, Syroid said. According to her, passing the bill means the beginning of reforms in the judicial system.
Syroid added that there are several issues with the bill’s implementation. “Unfortunately, there’s this lack of belief in these governmental agencies responsible for implementation of the judicial reform. There’s this huge lack of trust in the President, although he will lose some of his influence on the judiciary system. Besides, people rarely trust in judges themselves”, the Deputy Speaker said.
