In an interview aired by 112. Ukraina TV Channel, Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament Vladimir Groisman said that President Pyotr Poroshenko has all legal grounds to submit proposals on changing the CEC’s makeup for the Parliament’s consideration.

“I spoke to the factions on many occasions, because it was important that all of them submitted the lists of their representatives to the CEC. And so it finally happened – they did submit the lists, every single one of them,” said the Speaker.

Just a reminder: a 7-year  term of the 12 out of 15 members of  the Central Electoral Committee expired on June 1, 2015.
