Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko demands the Verkhovna Rada to cancel the compulsory electronic declaration for the representatives of the NGO’s which deal with anticorruption activity. This was reported by Interfax with the reference to President’s Administration Press Office.
“Petro Poroshenko insists that the Verkhovna Rada and all its factions unexceptionally should finally take into consideration the argumentation of the civil society, our partners, the Head of the state and make a relevant decision on the cancellation of the electronic declaration of anticorruption crusaders,” the press office reports.
The representatives of the President’s Administration reminded that Poroshenko presented the relevant bill in summer in 2017 and he was ready to sign it.
“The Head of the state stresses that the introduction of the electronic declaration for the activists, approved in the previous year, was a mistake. It is not irretrievable, it can be amended and it should be done,” the press office added.
Earlier, the Verkhovna Rada refused to consider the bills which are cancelled or reschedule the deadline for submission of the electronic declarations of property and revenue of the NGO’s representatives, which deal with corruption.
As it was reported, the Group of Seven called Ukraine for cancellation of the e-declaration for anticorruption crusaders.
