The Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko and other associates of the former president of Petro Poroshenko must resign. This was stated by the Chairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life Viktor Medvedchuk on The Pulse program on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Look, we will support filed resignation of Lutsenko. And the principled position is that these people should resign, for many reasons, I confirm it once again. Moreover, there are many arguments that these people must leave their positions. The second argument, including the one you quoted at the beginning, and what is written, or what serves as an argument or a motive for the filing is that he does not have a law degree. Well, this is not just a shame; and it is offensive to the country that a Prosecutor General does not have a law education,” he said.
“Yes, you can change the law, you can even amend the Constitution, if there are 300 votes, - write the name of the eternal prosecutor general or eternal president, you can do everything, but where are the interests of people? Where are the interests of the country? Why we need to tolerate such risks when the person who heads the body has no law education. Why should we live in conditions, when a person who holds a high position, who influences the state of rule of law in Ukraine does not have specialized education, does not have professional training for this position? Why? Is he the only person for this? It is just in the interests of Poroshenko. Period. And this interest must be removed,” Medvedchuk said.
Earlier, Zelensky signed the submission for resignation of Prosecutor General Lutsenko. The Parliament will consider it.
