On July 10, 2018 meetings of voters were held in the city of Chernomorsk Odesa region, each of which was attended by more than 300 people. At the meetings, proposals were made to withdraw deputy mandates from the deputies of the Chornomorsk City Council: Olha Borovska, Serhiy Mirkula and Yevhen Ponomariov. In accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On the Status of Deputies of Local Councils”, initiative groups were formed to collect signatures for the recall of deputies.
The territorial organization of the Political Party “OPPOSITION BLOC” in the city of Chernomorsk considers this proposal to be justified and declares that it welcomes and supports this people’s initiative.
Deputies of the Chornomorsk City Council O. Borovska, S. Mirkula and E. Ponomariov ran and were elected to the Chornomorsk City Council on the lists of the Territorial Organization of the Political Party “OPPOSITION BLOC” in the city of Chernomorsk, with the pre-election program of our party. However, immediately after the end of the 2015 elections, they lost contact with the party, refused to comply with its decisions, in fact betrayed the interests of the party and its electors. For violation of party discipline in February 2016 O. Borovska, S. Mirkula and E. Ponomariov were excluded from the political party “OPPOSITION BLOC” by the decision of the Political Council of the Party.
Throughout 2016-2018, these deputies, in fact, acted contrary to the pre-election promises and interests of their constituents.
We have no doubt that the proposal to revoke the mandates of O. Borovska, S. Mirkula and E. Ponomariov will be supported by the city’s voters, first of all – by members and supporters of our party.
For our part, after the end of the collection of signatures and the relevant decision of the Chornomorsk City Election Commission, we will turn to the Political Council of the Party with a request to make a positive decision on the issue of recalling the mandates of these deputies.
We also guarantee that the place of the three retired deputies will be occupied by worthy representatives of our party, who love their city and are ready to work for the benefit of its inhabitants.
