 Coalition agreement has to be updated and corrected, Rada Speaker Hroisman says

The coalition agreement, just like any other strategic document, is "living" and needs being updated.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainski Novyny, this was announced by Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman on air of TV channel "1+1".

"I think the coalition agreement is not measured by a yearly plan. On the other hand, I believe that lagging is unacceptable. So I think... that we have to update the coalition agreement. ...

"Like any strategic document, it is "living" and has to be updated and corrected," he said.

Hroisman also stressed that the coalition agreement was the basis for the reforms legislation plan, and many laws of the plan have been supported by the Rada.

Earlier in October, President Poroshenko estimated that the parliamentary factions had fulfilled the coalition agreement by 30 percent and called it unsatisfactory.

In July, deputy head of Presidential Administration Dmytro Shymkiv expressed an opinion that the terms of certain coalition agreement provisions' fulfillment should be reviewed.
