Rada to hold two extraordinary meetings on March 30, one of which initiated by President – MP Kravchuk
The Verkhovna Rada plans to hold two extraordinary meetings on March 30, one of which will be initiated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, Deputy Head of the Servant of the People faction Yevhenia Kravchuk told Interfax-Ukraine.
"There will be two extraordinary meetings, and they will be held on Tuesday, March 30. One of the meetings will be initiated by the President," the parliamentarian said.
According to her, the agenda of these meetings will be quite busy, the head of state will propose most of the bills for consideration.
"Mostly these are the bills of the economic nature. Firstly, this is the president's bill on the payment of UAH 8,000 for entrepreneurs who are now in quarantine and do not work in the 'red' zones. It also concerns a package of bills that relate to capital amnesty, which the President submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a few weeks ago," Kravchuk said.
At the same time, the Verkhovna Rada intends to "unblock large-scale privatization" during an extraordinary meeting. The relevant bills were on the agenda of the last plenary week right after the issues on land reform.
"And there are a number of bills, which are small, but also important. One of them is about the 'baby package', which should unblock tenders on the ProZorro platform, so that the next batch of 'packages' can be purchased. One of the government bills – No. 4540 – will also be considered: it concerns administrative liability for violation of self-isolation and mask regime," Kravchuk said.
In addition, according to her, the Verkhovna Rada intends to definitely consider draft resolution No. 5295 on condemning the events that occurred on March 20, 2021 at the President's, as well as a report by representatives of law enforcement and security agencies regarding this incident. "This part will be initiated by the MPs, and tomorrow [March 25] we will start collecting signatures," Kravchuk said.
