Press secretary of Yury Lutsenko—head of ‘Petro Poroshenko Block’ fraction wrote in Facebook.
“One of the positive points of appointment of Chernigov governor is that Refat Chubarov will be the next deputy who becomes a lawmaker of Verkhovna Rada”- said in the statement.
A small number of lawmakers from Crimea were elected to Ukraine's parliament through the proportional, party-list ballot. Six of those candidates were running on President Petro Poroshenko’s party list.
Running as number 71on the Petro Poroshenko Bloc list Head of Mejlis Refat Chubarov failed to become a lawmaker of the Verkhovna Rada, as the block won almost 22% in the vote.
Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev was the fifth in the list, so he became Ukrainian MP. He was later appointed Presidential Commissioner on Crimean Tatar Issues.
