As reported, early July 2018, Verkhovna Rada on Thursday passed bill No. 8331-d on reformation of supervisory boards of state-owned banks. This document provides that the supervisory board of the state-owned bank should consist of nine members, of which six should be independent, three - representatives of the state in proportion to the president, the Cabinet and the Verkhovna Rada. The supervisory board also determines the criteria to be met by independent members and representatives of the state in the supervisory board of the state-owned bank.
To determine candidates for the posts of members of the supervisory board of the state-owned bank, the Cabinet of Ministers establishes a tender commission consisting of three representatives from the President of Ukraine, three representatives from the government, and one representative of the parliament.
