Prosecutors believe that local councils should not give assessments of the situation
Prosecutors of Rakhiv and Vynogradiv districts filed to the Transcarpathian Regional Administrative Court claims to recognize illegal and cancel decisions of extraordinary sessions of Rakhiv and Vynogradiv district councils, the press service of the regional prosecutor's office reported.
These district councils, exceeding the powers granted to them, passed decisions "On the socio-political situation in the country", and decided to appeal to the Supreme Council of Ukraine demanding to immediately stabilize the situation and prevent further escalation of the conflict on the issues of resignation of the Government's, early presidential and parliamentary elections, bringing the Constitution of Ukraine to the revision of 2004 and other matters, the report states.
Thus, the district councils grossly violated the norms of the Constitution, the Law "On Local Self-Government in Ukraine" and other applicable rules of law which do not allow local governments to adopt such decisions, the prosecutors believe.
