Chairman of Kyiv City Administration Vitaliy Klitschko has to leave his post as he had lost control over the capital, as Head of President’s Office Andiry Bohdan said at the briefing broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.

“Mr. Klitschko… steps down as all the heads of city administrations do. Yet, unfortunately, Cabinet of Ministers did not send a proposal for dismissal since president’s inauguration,” Bohdan said referring to the law of Ukraine’s Constitution on local state administrations.

It should be noted that according to article No. 118 of Ukraine’s Constitution the heads of state administrations are appointed and dismissed by the President under the proposal of the Cabinet of Ministers.

According to Bohdan, Klitschko visited President’s Office twice.

“He has lost control over the situation in the city within the past five years, and Kyiv’s Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko said that he did not control Kyiv Council. There are two-three enforcers who have certain groups of MPs, and if he can’t find ways to compromise with them, he won’t have the majority in Kyiv Council, which means he won’t be a good Mayor,” Bohdan said.
