The systemic transformation taking place in Kiev, were made possible thanks to the efforts of mayor Vitali Klitschko, who managed to unite different parties of the city Council to work effectively. About it at himself on the page in Facebook wrote blogger Vladimir Makarov.
He said that especially clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of the Council in comparison with the work of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
â€œLooked at the stream a city Council meeting. I must say that in comparison with the Verkhovna Rada, as they say in Odessa, two big differences, and not least thanks to Vitali Klitschko. After all, what we see in Parliament? A significant number of members in principle do not go to the session â€“ who have been hiding in Moscow, who just â€œlost interestâ€œ to work. Periodically the speaker has prematurely close the session, as deputies in the hall enough to be Happy,â€œ â€“ said the blogger.
According to him, the situation is radically different city Council, as its members are much more effective than the people’s representatives in Parliament.
â€œIn the Cabinet for every decision voted for 80-90 deputies out of 120. And, interestingly â€“ and Pro-government factions and opposition. Yes, for example, representatives from Freedom continually ask tough questions, criticize some actions of officials, but even the opposition that the city needs in decision support. And those systemic changes we are now seeing in Kiev, became possible precisely because the mayor has managed to unite different parties for achieving real goals. Thanks for last year reached really record levels: open 10 kindergartens, 8 hospitals repaired, replaced, 302 km of roads and more. And that iconic, all factions of the city Council supported this year’s budget, where revenues are several billion more than in the prosperous 2017. To be precise, out of 120 95 of deputies supported the budget â€“ that is, almost the whole room,â€œ â€“ said Makarov.
He drew attention to the fact that such the effectiveness of the Council is observed for the first time in 20 years.
â€œI remember, â€œconfusion and vacillationâ€œ of the Kiev deputies in the Chernivtsi and Popov, when decisions were often made with a margin of one vote, when regularly blocked the rostrum, when the deputies were fighting in the hall. All this remained in the past. For the first time in 20 years I see a city Council that just does his job and copes with it well. Klitschko was able to successfully combine the political power to push and pull for a common goal â€“ to make Kyiv better. In my opinion, and it must work with local councils and administration, and other cities of Ukraine it is time to take an example of Kievâ€œ, â€“ concluded the blogger.
