Reform enacted by: Parliament of Ukraine [Verkhovna Rada]

The Parliament has adopted amendments to the law on local self-government, which orders local council members to make decisions solely in the form of a roll-call vote [Bill №2016a].

The law was passed by 236 votes.

At the same time, local parliament ministers have the right to vote in secret in certain cases provided for by the law.

All results of the voting must now be published on the same day on the site of the local council and be kept there indefinitely. They must also be available on request in accordance with the law on access to public information.

The law comes into force two months after its publication.
