The number of MPs should correspond to the number of constituencies, which amount to 225 in Ukraine. Yuriy Boyko, the presidential candidate from the political force 'Opposition Platform-For Life', said this in the interview with 112 Ukraine.
“This is the requirement of many people. There are 225 constituencies, so we should have the same number of MPs. As far as I remember, people five or more times stated this over last month: “The number of MPs should reduce, because how should we feed them?” And they were right,” the MP said.
Boyko is sure that the amendments to the Constitution should be made with the help of a referendum, not voted by the parliament, which practically “lost people’s trust.” “Under such conditions, it goes without saying that any decisions should be made by people…when the parliament decides to go to NATO, EU or elsewhere, the parliament with 2% of people trust cannot take decisions concerning foreign affairs, on which depends the future of the country. It should be done with the help of referendum”, - the politician added.
Earlier, the majority of the Verkhovna Rada relies on the ideology very much that this desire for political realization makes them take the most stupid decisions.
According to Boko, the current parliament is unique, because the MPs were chosen during the military conflict. “In general, militants and the Ukrainian people believed that they chose those, who can protect the country. The quality of the parliament today is the lowest one. And when the question arose concerning a peaceful life, the economy, then the parliament just was not ready. Ideological radical things - yes, they still understand this, but not the economic changes," the politician stated.
