As reported by Censor.NET, Petro Poroshenko said it on Twitter.
"We agreed to set up a working group to discuss changes to the e-declaration law," the president wrote.
Presidential press secretary Sviatoslav Tseholko said: "Since the obligation to fill out electronic declarations by representatives of NGOs takes effect only in 2018, following a proposal by the president of Ukraine, the parties agreed to create a working group with the participation of representatives of NGOs, lawmakers and representatives of the Presidential Administration with an aim to develop a set of agreed changes to this law."
On March 27, Parliament Speaker Andrii Parubii handed over for signature to the president a scandalous bill amending the e-declaration law providing for anti-corruption activists to declare their income.
Earlier, on March 23, President Poroshenko said he would hold consultations on the law adopted by the Verkhovna Rada to amend article 3 of the e-declaration law. The change is intended to exempt rank and file, sergeants, sergeant staff servicemen, junior officers from the obligation to submit electronic income statements. At the same time, the law obliges representatives of NGOs to declare their income and assets.
On March 24, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine upheld its recent decision requiring anti-corruption activists to submit electronic income and asset statements and exempting certain categories of the military from this obligation.
