Member of the BYT faction in the Kyiv City Council Mykhaylo Brodskiy is confident that the request of Kyiv Mayor Leonid Chernovetskiy to prolong the period of his registration as a lawmaker indicates that he is still uncertain whether he will cope with the work on the post of the Mayor.

According to M.Brodskiy’s press-service, the request of Chernovetskiy indicates that he “admits his inability to rule the city”.

M.Brodskiy notes that Central Electoral Commission chairman Yaroslav Davydovych, having allowed the request of L.Chernovetskiy, “left him a way for an inevitable escape”. M.Brodskiy states that L.Chernovetskiy has not fulfilled any of his election promises.

On 29 August the Central Electoral Commission prolonged the period of registering Kyiv Mayor Leonid Chernovetskiy as a lawmaker till 1 December.
