Bill to allow Lutsenko become prosecutor general may be introduced in Rada tomorrow - PPB MP Nayyem

A bill abolishing mandatory legal experience of a candidate for prosecutor general may be introduced in the parliament tomorrow.

Сensor.NET correspondent reports quoting Petro Poroshenko Bloc MP Mustafa Nayyem.

According to him, it will depend on the decision of the relevant committee which will meet in the near future. "As far as I understand, the president sees this bill as urgent, therefore, it would be logical to assume it can be put on tomorrow's agenda," the politician added.

He called the introduction of such a bill "political cheating" in order for a specific person to become prosecutor general. "This is done explicitly, this is done by the Presidential Administration, and we know that the Presidential Administration will determine the candidacy. This is just a blatant manipulation of the legislative field," the lawmaker stressed.

Nayyem suggests that the Presidential Administration is considering not only the candidacy of PPB faction chairman Yurii Lutsenko but also "one of the governors, one of the MPs, as well as Sevruk [acting prosecutor general - ed.]."

He does not exclude that after the legislation is amended, Poroshenko will sign these changes and suggest the candidacy for the post of prosecutor general on Friday.
