The Parliament considered two models of the new Electoral code – with open regional lists and national lists open from each party. This was stated by MP from the “Samopomich” Olena Sotnyk, the TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
“This Election code (bill number 3112-1 – ed.) actually proposes to remove the majoritarian constituencies. Now consider, by the way, two models. One model is the open regional lists, which by and large represents the same majority system, as for me. Is just open lists, that is, a single list from the party, nationwide. Even today, as I understand it, among the political forces, there was no consensus,” said the Centurion.
According to her, the draft of the new Electoral code is almost ready for consideration in the Verkhovna Rada in the second reading.
“Today was the meeting of the meeting regarding the priority for consideration of bills in Parliament, and this code is one of the main. That is, we can expect that he will appear in the hall. Just have to say here, once again, we have included the key problem is the large number of amendments. There are 4 thousand amendments. This means that it can be considered at least fifteen plenary week”, – said the MP.
