The e-petition system is imitating the conversation between government officials and citizenry. The MP from Opposition block party Olexandr Nechayev stated this commenting the launch of this particular system on the Government portal by the Cabinet on August 29.
According to him, after year of e-petitions on President's website they didn't become effective citizens' stranglehold on government.
"Citizens gather the required number of votes, but the government ignores them instead of reacting on what’s important for their people", People's Deputy stressed.
As Nechayev mentioned, 10 petitions gathered more than 25 000 votes, they described the need of improving the living standards and the violating of public's rights, but the officials never put these questions to the agenda.
"There is no point to suppose that petitions to the government will be more useful", he stated.
