On February 29, Lilia Harbuziuk, Active Community regional team in Poltava asked local residents about their attitudes to the initiative. Most information hour participants supported the reduction of people’s deputies. It is worth mentioning that Ukrainians in all cities agree to the reduction of MPs, but in most cases they cannot suggest the number of deputies to be established by the Constitution, the current number of deputies and why they decided to reduce the number of deputies to 300 people. In most cases, information hours participants say that deputies do nothing so no harm will be made. However, there were some people who suggested to elect good people to be deputies, instead of the reduction of their number.
Note. The all-Ukrainian initiative “Active Community” – is an association of people and social movements for self-organization and participation in solving local problems. The initiative was created within the framework of the Institute “Respublica”.
