The association of the cities of Ukraine and communities asks parliament to support modification of the Constitution of Ukraine regarding unification of terms of office of representative body of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, local councils and rural, settlement, city chairmen (bill No. 4177).
About it it is spoken in the appeal of Association to the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Vladimir LITVIN, and also heads of all parliamentary fractions, accepted on behalf of all local governments.
In particular, in the text of the address transferred the UNIAN, it is noted that the problem caused by distinction in terms of office of local councils and rural, settlement, city chairmen, can appear in front of Ukraine after carrying out the next local elections in 2010 as the term of office of the elected on these elections rural, settlement, city chairmen will make four years, and a term of office of deputies of local councils - five years.
Such distinction in terms of office of local councils and chairmen of territorial communities won't be coordinated with logic of the law "About Local Government in Ukraine" and can lead to disbalance of work of all local governments, is emphasized in the address.
Besides, authors mark out him, elections of deputies of local councils not at the same time with elections of rural, settlement, city chairmen will lead to double increase in expenses from the state budget.
At the same time, are convinced of AGU, corresponding changes in the Constitution will provide a continuity of process of self-government and will promote effective work of local governments which will be elected on the next local elections.
