The deputies will bear responsibility for non-attendance in sessions of the Parliament. Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, has authorized Volodymyr Groysman, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, to consider the punishment of deputies for truancy. Poroshenko proposes to deprive them of mandates.
The decision came after the online petition, posted in early October on Presidents’ website, collected over 27,103 out of required 25,000 signatures. So, from now on, a deputy will be deprived of his/her mandate for 3 cases of absence at plenary meetings without any good reason.
Such practice exists in other countries. For instance, the deputies in the US, Great Britain and Canada bear responsibility for absenteeism. So, the Ukrainian deputies, who are often absent from sessions of the Verkhovna Rada, may be deprived of their mandates.
