The president-elect of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that it was too early to talk about the possible dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada and the holding of early parliamentary elections. He focused on this after a meeting with the MPs, 112 Ukraine reported.
“Everyone wants to know: will we dissolve the Verkhovna Rada or not. It’s too early to talk about that yet. I don’t have authority yet. As soon as there is an authority, you will receive an answer,” said Zelensky.
As the co-chairman of the Vidrodzhennya MPs' group Viktor Bondar specified later, the issue of dissolving parliament was one of the most actual.
"Most of the factions were most interested in a question of dissolution, whether the electoral system would be changed, whether the president has the desire and willingness to let the parliament work: to pass laws on impeachment, on canceling parliamentary immunity, on temporary investigation commissions. We didn’t hear that a direct answer from Zelensky. He is trying to grope how the Rada will behave, "the Interfax-Ukraine quotes the MP.
The next parliamentary elections in Ukraine should be held in October of this year.
Earlier Zelensky said that the heads of parliamentary factions do not yet have a common opinion on the date of his inauguration. Most likely, it will become known after the May 14 Verkhovna Rada meeting. He stated this after a meeting with the deputies.
"An acquaintance took place. We proposed our date, which I announced before this meeting - May 19... But we discussed different dates, MPs have different opinions, so we can understand the date, probably, only on May 14, at the Rada meeting," he said.
