The mechanism of electronic petitions is introduced in the Regional Council
The decision on the initiative of the Regional Council Chairman Volodymyr Chubirko was adopted by the deputies.
The decision provides for adoption of the new instrument of appealing to the local government - an electronic petition. Electronic petitions will be submitted through the official website of the Regional Council.
An e-petition, addressed to the regional council, will be considered and responded to if it is signed by at least one thousand people within 30 calendar days after the publication of the petition.
The e-petition will be considered at the plenary session of the Regional Council by adoption of a decision.
The Regional Council recommended district, city, town and village councils of the region to adopt appropriate provisions on the review of electronic petitions.
