"Despite the fact that your activity almost completely destroyed the legitimacy of the Verkhovna Rada, you have a chance to restore at least some public confidence in representative democracy. To do this, you just need to start voting for the reform bills, which were developed by Ukrainian and Western experts. They remain without consideration for years, although the citizens and the country are waiting for them," he wrote on Facebook on May 27.

In addition, the president urged not to spoil these bills with "corruption antics."

"At the same time, I am confident the Central Election Commission will fulfill its functional responsibilities for the organization of the electoral process," Zelensky said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine's new President Volodymyr Zelensky on May 21 signed a decree disbanding the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament.

On May 23, the decree on the early termination of the powers of the Verkhovna Rada and the appointment of early elections on July 21, 2019 was published in the government's official newspaper Uriadovy Kurier.
