Rada votes for a new prosecutor general
Ukraine on May 12 got a new Prosecutor General appointed.
BPP faction leader Yuriy Lutsenko got through all necessary stages to get the chair at warp speed.
To facilitate appointment, the Ukrainian Parliament the same day amended the legislation to allow nominating a person without experience in the field of law. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko immediately signed the bill into law and submitted the motion to the Verkhovna Rada on Lutsenko's appointment. Parliamentary committee recommended the appointment of the leader of the faction BPP for this position, and at the evening plenary session, the parliament began consideration of this issue.
There were no fights in the parliament before the vote. People's deputies from BPP have blocked the parliamentary rostrum... in order not to let the Radical Party MPs block it.
Petro Poroshenko personally attended the meeting to submit the nomination.
Ultimately, 264 People's Deputy greenlighted the appointment of Yuriy Lutsenko Ukraine's Prosecutor General. Poroshenko immediately signed the appointment, and then the Rada deprived Lutsenko of his deputy mandate.
