Deputy head of the Presidential Administration Oleksii Filatov believes it is not possible to completely replace the entire judicial manpower in Ukraine.

He said this at a legal forum, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

Filatov believes it is not possible to find 8,000 new judges in Ukraine if the acting judicial manpower is dismissed.

He forecasts that most of the acting judges will be re-elected to their positions again. In this case, Filatov said, it makes no difference between re-credentialing and dismissal of all the judges.

The deputy head of the Presidential Administration also noted that the judicial reform developed by the Constitutional Commission of Ukraine has been directed to the European Venice Commission, and it included an alternative suggestion to dismiss all the judges in Ukraine.

Filatov together with deputy speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oksana Syroid intend to visit the Venice Commission session on Oct. 23-24 for the discussion of the matter.
