Klitschko to be removed from post of chairman of BPP party
Vitaliy Klitschko will be removed from the post of chairman of the Block of Petro Poroshenko (BPP) party by the decision of the party congress, Ukrainian Segodnya daily newspaper has reported, with reference to MP from the BPP Oleksiy Honcharenko.
"This issue will be discussed at the party congress. It's too early to speak about his successor," he said.
Vitaliy Klitschko has to leave the post due to the new law on civil service, which prohibits public officials of such rank to be members of political parties.
According to the publication, Ihor Hryniv, who was appointed the chairman of the BPP faction on Monday, may become the new chairman of the party. Hryniv told the newspaper he knew nothing about such a possibility.
