President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, commenting on the bill on de-oligarchization he initiated, stated that if parliamentarians do not support the bill, he will seek public support through a referendum. He added that there is no point in the dissolution of the parliament nowadays over the vote failure “from the point of view of stability.” Zelensky stated this during the ‘Ukraine 30’ forum.
“I believe that it makes no sense to dissolve the Verkhovna Rada today considering stability issues. If lawmakers vote and work, it is great. And if not - then there is no meaning in the work of the Verkhovna Rada,” Zelensky said.
The president emphasized that “if suddenly parliamentarians turn from lawmakers to businessmen, I will expect support from society.”
At the same time, Zelensky is confident that his bill will be supported by MPs from his party Servant of the People.
