Civil Society Representatives Asked Groysman to Put the Draft Law on the Regulator to a Vote

24 December 2015

Olena Pavlenko, President, Dixi Group Analytical Centre, requested Volodymyr Groysman, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, to put the Draft Law No. 2966 to a vote. “This statutory act should be put to a vote as quickly as possible”, she noted. “It does not matter whether it will be passed or rejected or passed in the first reading or sent back to the Committee. The civil society is ready to accept any options. We know how it should look in the end and how it must be finalized”.

As it was reported earlier, MPs think that the Draft Law on the Regulator will be put to a vote at the beginning of 2016.

It should be mentioned that at the beginning of September, the Strategic Advisory Group was announced to be established with involvement of top-notch Ukrainian and international experts and MPs. The Group is finalizing the Draft Law No. 2966 “On the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission”.

While working in the Group, the experts analysed over 190 comments to the Draft Law. The activities of the Strategic Advisory Group were made possible with the support of the “Promotion of Establishment of the Independent Regulator in Ukraine” project, jointly implemented by DiXi Group and the International Renaissance Foundation.

It should also be mentioned that the final version of the Draft Law No. 2966 was reviewed by the Energy Community Secretariat.
