A deputy can be fired. Here is the procedure! (OPINION)

Perhaps for you it is no secret that the vast majority of our deputies go to the parliament for their own business interests, or to receive "compensation" for making "right" decisions. And they do not care about ordinary people, like me and you.

The very next day after the election, a majority of deputies "forget" about their campaign promises and plans. Meanwhile, in my appartment block, the roof is leaking, the elevator has been out of use for more than a year, the building is cracking, the heater is not working because of low voltage, the gas company once again raised fares, children's playground near the house was given for trade facilities, the illegal construction blocks the light in front of my windows, new kiosks and outdoor advertising keep appearing in the city, while green areas are disappearing...

Those issues are supposed to be addressed by our local MP. Yet we remain alone with our problems.  What's more - most often our "elected representatives" are actually involved in the decisions that make our, the citizens' lives even worse.

Meanwhile, for some reason, every day we come to work on time, perform all the instructions of our superiors, sometimes, in our opinion, stupid, try not to lose our credibility. It's simple: I can easily be fired, and there are a lot of applicants for my job. And the company does not need loafers, they could lead to bankruptcy.

However, why can we not just fire our parasite and violator deputies? Why do we let them lead our city and home to the decline?  Why does my deputy have no fear of being dismissed? Isn't he the same worker as myself?

In fact, our deputies can be fired under the same grounds as well as us, namely, the loss of credibility, skipping meetings of the parliament or a commission, failure to fulfill election promises and programs, etc.

And the procedure of "dismissal" of a local MP is available for each of us, and consists of six steps:

Step 1.  Meeting of voters decide to propose to withdraw their deputy, to create an initiative group to collect signatures. The Law of Ukraine "On elections of deputies of local councils and village, town and city mayors" envisaged the minimum number of 10 voters at such meetings, but now the law, and therefore the requirement as to the number is invalid.

Step 2. Meeting of voters send to the territorial election commission a minutes, which approves the decision to propose to withdraw their deputy, to create an initiative group to collect signatures.

Step 3. Territorial Election Commission (TEC) shall decide on the issuance of signature sheets to collect signatures. The law gives TEC the right to refuse to accept minutes of the meeting of voters only in case of infringement of the procedure concerning the proposal to withdraw a deputy, which does not deprive voters of the right to consider the deficiencies and re-submit the proposal to the TEC.

Step 4. The TEC give signature sheets to the head of the initiative group to collect signatures.

Step 5. The initiative group collect signatures in support of the proposal to withdraw the local MP and submit them to the TEC. The initiative group must collect signatures of at least 5% of the voters in the constituency. For Uzhgorod it is 120-150 voters.

Step 6. The TEC appoints the voting on the withdrawal of the deputy.

The deputy is considered withdrawn if more than half of the voters who participated in the voting voted against him or her.

The news about a dismissed colleague will immediately cure the after-election "amnesia" and make loafer deputies work to improve our well-being. Otherwise, they will also be fired! And at the next election asking the question: "Are you running for the deputy?" we will hear the answer: "No!  No! I'll have to work there!".

And now, dear readers, I have a question for you: "Who will be the first?".

Но есть часть людей, которые осуществляли криминал до избрания народными депутатами, осуществляют криминал, находясь в статусе народного депутата, и просто прикрываются неприкосновенностью. Если бы она была отменена, цена мандата упала бы, и людям, которые имеют проблемы с законом, парламент был бы неинтересным, потому что сейчас цену мандата поднимают именно те люди, которые имели уголовное прошлое или занимаются криминалом сейчасвот читай про алканов скопируй в поиск )) Статьи: Доктор Бодунов консультирует!! )) Там ВСЯ Правда об алкоголизме.Спившегося алкоголика невозможно вылечить

Кандидатів на таку процедуру в нашому місті знайдетеся багато!


Ужгородець  02/09/2013 9:10 am

Які всі розумні! Давайте відразу відкличемо Презедента! Більше користі буде, тільки проблема - ніким замінити! А може нам і без нього краще буде?


Ужгородець  01/09/2013 10:40 pm
