Minus one. Uzhgorod deputies again switch factions

Mykhailo Stankovich - City Council Member from the "Batkivshchyna" - has left the faction of the same name. In this way, most likely, he reinforces the "pro-mayor" majority in the council.

Mykhailo Stankovich is the head of Economic and Business Department of Uzhgorod City Council. He wrote the statement of withdrawal from the faction on June 3 - the head of the "Batkivshchyna" faction Vasyl Hnatkiv said. He stressed that for the past six months a considerable pressure has been exerted on Mykhailo Stankovich, given his position. "For several months he has voted not always according to the decision of the faction, and now he leaves the faction. The pressure on him by the mayor was truly terrible" - Vasyl Hnatkiv told uzhgorod.in.

Recall that among the recent high-profile sectarian deserters there have been deputies Hryhoriy Shevchuk and Ivan Voloshin that left the United Center fraction. Officially, they are not members of the Party of Regions, but, as they say in the parliamentary lobby, they vote according to the ruling party's orders. Less than a year ago, Taras Rumyantsev left the "Batkivshchyna" faction and joined the Party of Regions. Now the "Batkivshchyna" fraction has 7 members.
