an open list system that will ensure maximum compliance with the will of the
citizens. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced on air of "24 channel" on
Wednesday, April 20.

consider it an exaggeration to talk about the ballot that would allegedly comply with the choice

views it an optimal system for Ukraine an open list voting system.
The Prime Minister noted that the debate on this issue is ongoing, as
views of the political forces differ. At the same time Volodymyr

people as they have been formed in the office of a political party. This is
vital," stressed the Prime Minister.
