EU proposes to change Ukraine’s electoral system

The European Union has reminded Ukraine of its pledge to transform its majoritarian electoral system into a proportional one.

Ian Tombinskiy , the Head of the EU Mission in Ukraine, has elaborated on this matter.

The coalition agreement contains a provision, which says that electoral law will become one of the first achievements of this coalition that is still in the process of forming the government. OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights recommended to abolish majoritarian system ”, Ian Tombinskiy said.

The EU Ambassador has expressed his support for a proportional electoral system.

In my opinion, the proportional system will make the process of parliament formation much more comprehensible ”, he underscored.
