More than 70 MPs support Lutsenko as prosecutor general. Appointment may require to amend law, - MP Honcharenko

As of yesterday evening, more than 70 lawmakers signed in support of appointing Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction leader Yurii Lutsenko prosecutor general.

Poroshenko Bloc faction deputy chairman Oleksii Honcharenko said on the sidelines of the Rada, Censor.NET correspondent reports.

"We did not discuss it within the faction. But we believe that the experience he has, including the experience of political persecution against him, is an extremely important blend: when a person, on the one hand, headed the Interior Ministry and on the other hand, experienced persecution against him and his family. He spent several years in jail for no reason. I think this mixture would be useful for the country," Honcharenko said.
