Ukraine needs urgent constitutional reform - Arseniy Yatsenyuk
KYIV. March 27 (Interfax) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has spoken out in favor of immediately implementing constitutional reforms in order to decentralize power in the country.
"We need to immediately implement constitutional reform and give people what rightfully belongs to them - power in the regions," Yatsenyuk said in parliament on Thursday.
"I, as prime minister, believe that when conducting the constitutional reform, it should include steps to abolish state regional administrations, establish executive committees, strip the central authorities of the functions that are alien to them and transfer these functions to the regional authorities. We will reduce the size of the central authorities by 20%. This measure is needed to implement our constitutional reform," he said.
