 MP Soboliev on establishment of commission to investigate offshore practices and corruption: “We decided to take a break until morning. Commission may be formed without PPB members”

Ukrainian lawmakers decided to return to the subject of establishment of the Provisional Investigatory Commission on corruption tomorrow morning. Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) MPs must approve and nominate their candidates for positions in the Commission by that time.

Batkivshchyna faction MP Serhii Soboliev said on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Censor.NET correspondent reports.

"If they do not submit their candidates, the five-day period will expire, and thus the project (to create the Provisional Investigatory Commission - Ed.) will be registered as currently drafted," he said and specified that the factions have five days to submit their candidates for positions in the Commission according to the regulations.

Asked a clarifying question that PPB faction announced nomination of its candidates back on Monday, Soboliev said that at that point there was no formal letter with this information from Poroshenko Bloc.

"As far as I know, some candidates have been recalled and there is no final version. That's why we took a break until the morning," the lawmaker explained.

According to Soboliev, there were no PPB representatives at a meeting on the Provisional Investigatory Commission creation.

The MP also said that Ihor Lutsenko would represent Batkivshchyna faction in the Commission while Oleh Liashko, who aspired to the position of the Commission chairman, would be the Radical Party representative.
