 Poroshenko approved all district heads in Odesa region selected through competition, - Saakashvili

Head of the Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili said that Poroshenko approved all heads of district state administrations selected in an "unprecedented" competition.

As reported by Censor.NET, Saakashvili wrote about it on his Facebook page.

"Today, following my submission, the president appointed heads of district state administrations in the Odesa region. Out of nearly 7,000 candidates, as a result of an unprecedented open competition, 26 mostly very young people with no prior experience in the public service were selected," Saakashvili wrote.

"They are all very interesting people. For example, Mykhailo Tytarchuk was in charge of a several-thousand mining staff in Congo. After his brother became one of the fallen defenders of the Donetsk airport, he decided to return to Ukraine and take part in the competition. Upon testing, interrogation by an independent commission, and final approval by the community at a public hearing he became the head of the Belhorod-Dnistrovskyi district. This district has huge potential, and, at the same time, faces serious criminal problems, with Ukraine's enemies constantly trying to fuel separatism there.

"The fact that people like Tytarchuk come to the public service, where they previously were not allowed and hardly wanted to go themselves, gives hope for Ukraine," Saakashvili resumed.
