President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky predicts that a special tender commission will be able to appoint a new head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) by the New Year, he stated in an interview with ICTV, on the air of the Freedom of speech program.

"As for the SAPO, the new head of the SAP - I was also surprised that the commission can not gather until the final result, the last stage of the competition, we worked a little, and I think that in the coming days this commission will meet and we will complete the competition, and this year we will finally get a SAP prosecutor," the president said.

As it was reported earlier, over a week ago the European Union and the United States of America expressed frustration with the delay in electing a leader of the SAP.

Applications for participation in the competition for the position of the SAPO head were submitted by 111 people.

At the regular meeting on March 1, the commission changed the passing score. Candidates now need to score 80 points in a test of knowledge of the law and 110 points in a test of general ability.

After the tests, an interview should take place. The potential head of the SAP and his deputy will have to be tested on a polygraph.

In the final, the winners will be determined according to the positions in the ranking after all stages of selection.

It should be noted that on October 9, the commission was unable to meet to assign a practical task to the candidates.
