Transcarpathian MPs: what they have done during a year in the office
In Uzhgorod Press Club, the Civic Network "OPORA" presented the analysis of the work of members of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine elected in majority constituencies in Transcarpathian region.
The subject of the analysis was not only the legislative activities of the elected representatives, but also the work in the region with the communities that elected them.
Volodymyr Feskov, Public consultant of the OPORA in Transcarpathian region told about the results of the analysis of the deputies' activities. According to him, the purpose of the monitoring was to increase the transparency of the MPs' work and to establish their communication with the community. "We believe that is a problem that the community, appealing to a deputy, in 50% of cases ask for financial aid, rather than solving the pressing problems of their constituency that can be solved by legislation. And MPs, in turns, are in no hurry to communicate with the community", - V. Feskov said.
Transcarpathia, as you know, has 6 majoritarian MPs.
One of the main tasks of MPs is to attend plenary meetings of the Parliament. They were rated according to this criterion. Thus, Vasyl Petyovka has the best attendance (missed only 4 of 116 meetings). Mykhail Lanyo has the poorest attendance - missed 49% of meetings. Real legislative work also takes place in the committees of the Parliament. In this regard, Robert Horvat has the best result - he attended 87% of meetings (26 of 30). Other deputies did not attend even 40% of meetings. Pavlo Baloha has the worst result - he attended only 7% of his committee meetings.
Only three deputies from Transcarpathia made speeches in the Parliament (R.Horvat, V. Baloha and M. Lanyo).
Transcarpathian deputies are quite active in legislation work. There are two leaders: Robert Horvat (38 registered bills (all - in collaboration with others), one of them became a law) and Victor Baloha (19 bills, 4 of them were adopted, 12 personally drafted bills).
