Oleh Didenko is 39 years old. He has a law degree; he has been working in the CEC since 2014.
The Verkhovna Rada changed the staff of the Election Commission in 2018 due to expiry of the term of its office; however, Didenko kept working in the Commission as he was included in the staff later than the other members, so his term was not expired then.
Before his work in the CEC, Didenko was doing private legal practice, he was the Executive Director of a law firm called Collegium. He was also the Deputy Leader of the Legal Department of Our Ukraine People's Union and the assistant to some ex-MPs.
Earlier, the Verkhovna Rada approved the draft resolution on the early termination of powers of the entire composition of the Central Election Commission.
