The Verkhovna Rada will not adopt the new Electoral Code until the snap parliamentary elections. There are too many controversial moments and not enough time; 112 Ukraine reported that, citing Iryna Lutsenko, ex-representative of President in the Parliament.

“I think that the electoral code will not be adopted. Too many amendments, too many controversial moments, too many outdated norms, and the group has no time to do it. It will be submitted for the next plenary week,” Lutsenko said.

She expressed the belief that closer to the elections, fewer MPs will be at the session hall.

“Even if the task group has time by blocks, by section, to submit this electoral code, which we should consider in the second reading, I am sure that MPs will not be present [during the voting]. So, my prediction – it will not be adopted,” the MP concluded.
