TI Ukraine and NAKO Announced Key Priorities for the Parliament
Today the new Verkhovna Rada started its work. The level of expectations of Ukrainians is unprecedented. President Volodymyr Zelensky is trusted by 70 per cent of citizens. Similar number of Ukrainians believeі in success of reforms. These are the data of the survey conducted by Ilko Kucheriv Democratic initiatives fund in partnership with the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.

Thus, the Independent Anti-Corruption Committee (NAKO) together with Transparency International Ukraine announced the key priorities for the Parliament. We expect the following steps from Verkhovna Rada:
  • To relaunch the National Agency on Corruption Prevention
  • To adopt changes to the Law on High Anti-Corruption Court
  • To realistically renew the judiciary branch
  • To reintroduce the responsibility for unlawful enrichment
  • Systemic changes at the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office
  • Continuation of the reform of public procurement
  • Binding obligation of Prozorro.Продажі e-auctions
  • To adopt changes to the Law on Agency for Investigation and Management of Assets
  • To cancel Lozovoy’s edits
  • To adopt the Law on protection of whistleblowers
  • To implement the Law on National Security
  • To declassify the large part of the State Defence Order
  • To increase the parliamentary control over Ukraine’s defence and security sector.
We hope that the corresponding laws will be adopted with consideration of the civil society's position on these issues.
