The Verkhovna Rada has supported the idea of ​​President Volodymyr Zelensky on the early termination of powers of all members of the Central Election Commission, - correspondent of OstroV reports.

341 MPs voted for the corresponding decision.

The president’s submission said that the CEC "repeatedly showed a lack of balance or even political bias". The CEC decision to refuse registration of 28 candidates for deputies is given as evidence.

The Verkhovna Rada approved the current composition of the CEC on September 20, 2018. Before that, the VR could not agree on the appointment of new CEC members for four years, despite the fact that the commission of 12 of 15 members of the CEC expired in June 2014, and of another one - in February 2017.
