 People's Front faction ready to vote for removal of parliamentary immunity, - MP Yemets

People's Front faction will vote for the removal of parliamentary immunity.

People's deputy Leonid Yemets announced on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET reports.

"In order to prevent any insinuations, I confirm my readiness to vote for it. I did it when we were sending the bill to the Constitutional Court, and I'll do it later, just because in the last early elections me and my colleagues promised that the inviolability of deputies would be cancelled.

"Therefore, the bill has been introduced, now it's being reviewed in the parliament, and I'll personally vote for it, there is a decision of our faction. I seriously doubt we have 300 votes in the parliament, and the president is absolutely right when he says that we need public pressure, as without it MPs are not ready to vote due to different circumstances," Yemets said.
