Volodymyr Zelensky dissolved the Verkhovna Rada. Early parliamentary elections will take place in Ukraine. The President-elect said this during a speech in the Verkhovna Rada.
Zelensky asks to dismiss Lutsenko, Grytsak and Poltorak. He gave the Council of this convocation two months.
The Party “Petro Poroshenko Bloc” and “People’s Front” are OK about the decision of President Volodymyr Zelensky to dissolve the Verkhovna Rada and prepare for the elections.
According to Ihor Kononenko, the first deputy head of the “Petro Poroshenko Bloc”, it is the president’s right to dissolve the parliament.
“This is the right of the president, he has exercised it so we will prepare for early parliamentary elections,” he said.
Instead, Zelensky commented on the reaction of the hall to the announcement of early elections, “Some kind of applause. I speak from the people, please.”
“I’ve been making you laugh for all my life, and over the next five years I’ll try to do everything to keep you from crying,” Zelensky completed his speech.
