Zelensky's office chief expects Cabinet to consider dismissal of Klitschko as Kyiv administration head soon
Head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's presidential administration Andriy Bohdan expects the Cabinet of Ministers will soon consider the dismissal of Vitaliy Klitschko as head of Kyiv City State Administration.
"In accordance with the Law of Ukraine 'On local state administrations,' the heads of the local state administrations are designated by the president of Ukraine upon submission of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine for the term of the cadence of president of Ukraine," said Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Ruslan Riaboshapka, according to the president's press service.
He recalled that Klitschko had been appointed by the former president of Ukraine as the head of Kyiv City State Administration in June 2014.
"Accordingly, the prime minister must fulfill a requirement of the law and make a submission on the dismissal of the head of Kyiv City State Administration," Riaboshapka said.
According to him, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman submitted a motion to dismiss all heads of local state administrations, except for the head of Kyiv City State Administration.
Riaboshapka said the prime minister should file an appropriate submission to the president. He hopes this issue will be considered at the next government meeting.
At the same time, Riaboshapka has warned politicizing the issue.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's presidential administration Andriy Bohdan sent a letter to Minister of the Cabinet Oleksandr Saenko, asking him to submit a motion to dismiss Vitaliy Klitschko as head of Kyiv City State Administration.
