At this, Petrenko said that the electronic income declaration system will be an effective tool of public control of officials.

"The selection commission, which is tasked to select two more members to the National Anti-Corruption Agency, will continue its meeting today, at 5 p.m., and we hope that all members of the commission will demonstrate their public stance and complete the selection process. As soon as we have a fully-formed Anti-Corruption Agency consisting of four persons, they can start working literally on the same day," the minister said.
