According to Groysman, more than five bills on changes to electoral legislation in the local elections are now ready.

"By the end of May we need to submit a bill to the Verkhovna Rada, which including other related laws will make it legally possible to hold local elections under a system of open lists. This is in order to elect not the brands of parties, but a person of this or that political force," he said.

In this case, Groysman said that the next meeting of a created working group to draft amendments to the law on local elections would be held on April 16.
