In the Parliament there is a majority to accept the reform of the GPU, – Tymoshenko

В Раде есть большинство, чтобы принять реформу ГПУ, - Тимошенко

The leader of the “Batkivschyna” Yulia Tymoshenko predicts that the Parliament “selling” a bill to reform the General Prosecutor of Ukraine (GPU). She declared it on air “Prime Evening” on TV channel “112 Ukraine”.

“It seems to me that if a person took such a difficult path with repression, prison, Yuri Lutsenko could stand up and say: “I can’t be attorney General because I adhere to the law, common sense, because I’m a friend of the President and even the godfather of the President, and not necessary for me to make laws”. Then I would give tribute to his courage and his internal morality,” she said.

At the same time, Tymoshenko predicts that the draft law on the reform of the GPU will be passed by Parliament. “And so it all looks very unfortunate, because tomorrow they utter. Selling because I merged the oligarchic clans of the former regime, merged Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and their fractions, and tomorrow they have a majority in order for it to stretch. It was an accident that they didn’t…” she said.

We will remind, on may 10 the Parliament failed to adopt in the first reading the reform of the General Prosecutor’s office concerning the possibility of the appointment of the public Prosecutor without legal training. Voted for the bill twice, the first time the initiative gained 224 votes, the second – 221.

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has postponed a working visit to the UK, in particular, in connection with the situation around the election of a new Prosecutor General.
