The Ukrainian Parliament will elect Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights on June 6. Andriy Parubiy claimed this during the plenary meeting that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine on May 26.
‘June 6 is the last day when the Verkhovna Rada should consider the issue of election of the Commissioner for Human Rights so this day will be devoted to this event. It will consist of some stages: full consideration, vote by the poll that is going to take a lot of time. If there will be no candidate to outvote we will conduct the second tour of voting with the two candidates who will have the largest number of votes. I think that it will be correct to devote the whole day for this. We will introduce the bills in the between of the counting the votes’, Parubiy said.
The official documents of the candidates were published in the official edition Voice of Ukraine on May 25. The candidates are Sergiy Alekseev, Ludmyla Denysova and Andriy Mamalyga.
The same day the Parliament Committee for Human Rights considered the issue of the relevance of the candidates to the post of the ombudsman.
‘The Committee did not point the recommendations or preferences concerning the election of the ombudsmen. We just checked the relevance of the candidates to the post: the experience of the human rights activity, age requirement of 40 years, the living on the territory of Ukraine in the last 5 years and so on. The Committee for Human Rights recognizes that these three candidates are relevant to the requirements’, Iryna Suslova published at Facebook.
The cadence of ValeriaLutkovska for being the ombudsmen ended on April 27. The MPs will elect Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights for 5 years.
