Yuliya Tymoshenko and her party oppose the law, allowing appointment of a person with no judicial education for position of Prosecutor General:
"It’s not about someone not liking Yuriy Lutsenko. The problem is that, if Lutsenko is appointed Prosecutor General, it will disrupt the essence of the prosecutor’s office and make it dependent from politicians. Independence of Prosecutor General from political parties, from the President, from government, parliament is the foundation of prosecutor’s office. To restore order in Ukraine, overwhelmed with offshore schemes, corruption at the highest level, Prosecutor General must be guided by law, Constitution, devoted to Ukraine and ready to fight against highest state authorities, which are currently the largest source of corruption in Ukraine".
