Only the parliamentary faction of the AUU “Batkivshchyna” submitted to the Presidential Administration of Ukraine a proposal on the appointment of a Central Election Commission after registration in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the Head of State on the appointment of members of the CEC June 3, 2016. This is mentioned in the response to the request of OPORA’s Electoral and Parliamentary Program Coordinator Olha Aivazovska.

Thus, other parliamentary factions and groups of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine did not update the list of candidates and/or officially did not confirm their previous staffing proposals regarding the positions of the members of the CEC.

Thereby, the Presidential Administration on September 8 made a proposal to appoint a member of the Central Election Commission only from the parliamentary faction of the “Batkivshchyna” political party. This is the candidacy of Zhanna Usenko-Chorna, the acting vice-chairman of the Central Election Commission.

We would like to remind, that representative of the President of Ukraine in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine MP of Ukraine Iryna Lutsenko has stated on the air of the 5th Channel on 21 June:

“Concerning the CEC. As far as I know from the last meetings, the consultations were conducted almost 100% in the Parliament. The President has already seen new candidacies from the factions. The President said: “I will sign only new candidates.” I think we will have a new CEC closer to the autumn,” – she said.

As we already know, 13 of 15 members of the Central Election Commission have had their term of office expired.

The President submitted to the Parliament documents for withdrawal of 12 current members of the CEC and appointment of new ones, but the Verkhovna Rada has failed to consider the corresponding draft resolutions.
