The Verkhovna Rada will elect the new composition of the Central election Commission (CEC) before the presidential elections.
This commentary, ГолосUA said political scientist Ruslan Bortnik.
“It all depends on if I can negotiate a national front and representatives of the Petro Poroshenko in respect of a single candidate for the presidential campaign. Yet to those agreements away, and the new composition of the CEC is far from acceptance. Closer to the elections, the likelihood of approval of the new composition of the CEC is quite high,” – said R. Bortnik.
At the same time, the analyst is skeptical about the adoption of a new electoral law.
“Mariesii don’t want to vote for a new electoral code. They advocate the preservation of the mixed system. In fact, Ukraine has already tried all the system. We had the majority, pure proportional and mixed system with open lists, which was used in 2015 local elections. However, none of these systems and the electoral code is not a guarantee against fraud. That power is the main schemer in the election. If she wants to break the law, it can any electoral law to use in their own interests”,- concluded R. Bortnik.
We will remind, elections with the old composition of the Central election Commission will automatically mean their illegitimacy. This was stated by the head of the faction “people’s front” Maxim Bourbaki during the conciliation Council. “The elections with the old CEC automatically means their illegitimacy is disrupted by elections is a blow to the country. So vote, chosen according to the recommendations of our Western partners and sent a new CEC to work,” – said Bourbaki. He also added that the CEC in its decision unlawfully stopped first appointment and an election in 98 United communities.
