On January 16 session of the Nikolaev regional council at which adoption of the regional budget for 2009 became the main issue took place. By the beginning of work of session nobody felt that discussion and adoption of the budget will be too difficult. Coordinated actions of the deputy commissions, meetings of Presidium of regional council were the prerequisite of such opinion, but maintenance costs of officials of regional council became a barrier not only to requirements of the budgetary legislation, but also interests of inhabitants of the Nikolaev area. Reports a press - service of the Nikolaev regional organization "Uniform Tsenr".
The course of events at session was commented by the chairman of NOO "Uniform Center" and, in combination, the vice-chairman Nikolayevskoy YEAH Vladimir Lusta. "By the beginning of work of session the draft budget was balanced and completely met the requirements of the budgetary legislation. I can tell that it isn't enough money for the content of the budgetary establishments of education, medicine, culture regarding unprotected articles including local governments though everything is calculated according to formular calculation", V. Lusta claims.
"Most of all struck budget and vote discussion about amending. Доголосовались that debalanced the budget more than on 1 million 600 yew. UAH, if allocated funds for social requirements would console, but officials only worried about themselves because funds for the maintenance of the office of regional council demanded. Contrary to Art. 57 of the Law of Ukraine "About the state budget for 2009" funds for the maintenance of officials of regional council allocated. Interests of group of people, won against interests of all population of the Nikolaev area.I consider that Nikolaev regional administration has to appeal against the decision "About the regional budget of the Nikolaev area for 2009" regarding not compliances to the budgetary legislation" - Vladimir Lusta noted.
The Nikolaev regional organization "Uniform Center" condemns actions of the majority of a depuy corps of regional council for prosecution of own interests, during adoption of the budget. Annoyingly that deputies from the block Yu. Tymoshenko, helped deputies to adopt from Party of Regions the budget and by that became participants of a legislative arbitrariness.
