Draft Law on the Election of People’s Deputies of Ukraine
In May 2011, the Ukrainian government presented a draft parliamentary election law. Among the notable changes in the draft law is the definition of a new electoral system. In the proposed legislation, half of the country’s deputies would be elected in single-member districts, as compared to the fully proportional representation system currently in use.
A vote on the draft law is expected this fall with parliamentary elections taking place in October 2012.
At the request of the Ministry of Justice, IFES translated the draft law from Ukrainian to English for the benefit of various international stakeholders. IFES is presently reviewing the draft law and will provide its analysis to the Ministry of Justice in September.
