The head of the OPPOSITION BLOC parliamentary faction, Vadym Novynskyi, together with the heads of factions of other parties in the Verkhovna Rada, met with newly elected President Volodymyr Zelensky. On behalf of the OPPOSITION BLOC, the leader of the faction wished Volodymyr Zelensky to be successful in his post, because the success of the whole country depends on it.
According to him, the main topic of the meeting was the end of the war and the peace process. “The president should move in this direction much more confidently than Petro Poroshenko. It is necessary not to imitate the peace process, but to establish the real peace in the Donbas and implement the Minsk agreements.
The second issue discussed was the adoption in the second reading of the Electoral Code on the basis of a proportional system with open lists. A mixed system of elections to the Verkhovna Rada is the basis for political corruption both during the elections and after them, directly in the hall of the Verkhovna Rada. An electoral code based on the proportional system with open lists is necessary,” Vadym Novynskyi said after the meeting.
According to him, the issue of dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada was discussed only briefly and was not the main thing during the conversation. According to Vadym Novynskyi, the people are waiting for Volodymyr Zelensky to unite society and respond to the most important challenges that Ukraine faces now. “The key issue is peace. I expressed my opinion to him and said that our faction would always support all the peace initiatives of President Zelensky,” the politician said.
