The President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky can remove the mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko the post of Chairman of Kyiv city state administration (KCSA) and to appoint to this place of his supporter. About it writes “Ukrainian truth” with reference to sources.
The source publication, surrounded by Klitschko said that once the mayor discussed with the head of the Office of the President, Andrei Bogdan rotation of regional heads of administrations in Kiev, but in the end their dismissal passed without the knowledge of Klitschko. Subsequently, Bogdan warned Klitschko about his possible dismissal from the post of Chairman of the KSCA.
“Bogdan him six times repeated that by law, all heads of administrations lay down their powers before the new President. But the President has the ability to remap the head, if it is effective. Therefore, Klitschko said, “you Have time for a couple of months, show the results of the work, lose your friends-corrupt and can work on””, the source said.
Now the team Zelensky there are two people who are ready to replace Klitschko as the head of the administration. First
the General Director of holding “1+1 media” Alexander Tkachenko. The second businessman Andrew Cold.
According to the source, the separation of the positions of mayor and head of Kyiv city state administration can lead to an internal political struggle. “For example, the mayor will consider that it is necessary to repair the road on Stepan Bandera, and the Chairman of the KSCA said, “No, you have to lay the pavement for Sophia”. Then whose instructions to carry out the public utilities?” — said the representative of Klitschko’s team.
Another reason for the weakening of the political positions Klitschko was the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada. In the autumn elections had planned to participate the party Klitschko “BLOW”, but to vote early political force was not ready. In the end, the STRIKE not having any election campaign, has fielded candidates only in the majoritarian constituency.
In April, Vitaly Klitschko addressed to Zelensky with the request to give Kyiv more money. The mayor noted that funds are needed for construction of roads, bridges and renewal of the urban economy.
