The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko plans to leave his post after early elections to the Verkhovna Rada and to go into politics. He said this on air of the ICTV channel.
He said that he considers it a priority to hold fair parliamentary elections in mid-July 2019. “After that, the newly elected Parliament will form its governing body, coalition, government. And after that, obviously, will decide on the new Prosecutor General”, — Lutsenko reminded.
The attorney General said that he intends to go into politics not by party lists, and “to the people that will work on the vision of development of Ukraine”.
In early may, Lutsenko complained about pressure from the Ukrainian President-elect Vladimir Zelensky. He spoke about information attacks on him by the command of the Ukrainian leader.
Lutsenko was appointed to his post by President Petro Poroshenko may 12, 2016. The term of office for this position is in Ukraine for six years. He had previously said he was willing to continue to work with the attorney General even in case of defeat Poroshenko in the presidential election.
