Early elections to the Verkhovna Rada may take place on July 21. President Volodymyr Zelensky proposes to amend the electoral legislation at an extraordinary session of the Verkhovna Rada and reduce the entry barrier to parliament. This was stated by Vitaliy Khomutynnik, co-chairman of the party “Revival”.
“The president proposed to amend the law on the election of people’s deputies. To introduce a short draft with several amendments, the first one is to abolish the majority system, and the second is to reduce the entry barrier to 3 %,” he said.
Currently, a mixed electoral system acts in Ukraine and parties that have received more than 5% of the vote enter the Verkhovna Rada.
