Outgoing Cabinet not to consider Klitschko's dismissal from top post in Kyiv Administration
The current composition of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine will not consider the issue of dismissal of Vitaliy Klitschko from the post of chairman of the Kyiv City State Administration.
"The issue of coordinating the dismissal of Vitaliy Klitschko has been discussed with officials. It was decided that the current composition of the government would not be considering it," Vasyl Riabchuk, the press secretary of Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, wrote on Facebook.
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, with a request to submit a motion to dismiss Vitaliy Klitschko as head of Kyiv City State Administration.
Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Ruslan Riaboshapka said: "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."
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.
