Hroisman promises to abolish parliamentary immunity

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman believes that parliamentary immunity should be eliminated.

He said this at a press briefing today, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"Parliamentary immunity should be completely eliminated. We just have to vote for this. I have been working in the government for eight years, and I have never had immunity, it doesn't make any difference, it should be just annihilated as a class, because immunity, in particular, brings to the parliament those who may not have wanted to do legislative work," Hroisman said.

He said that he fully supports the idea that in the near future this important decision should be made.

"I gave instructions to the Verkhovna Rada to quickly draft a plan for the abolition of parliamentary immunity," he said.
