 NEWS ITEM: On Sept. 18, most Ukrainian lawmakers approved a proposal to shrink their plenary sessions from four days a week to just one day. According to the decision, Ukraine’s parliament will have only two one days of plenary sessions before elections – on Oct. 2 and Oct. 16.
When explaining such a precedent, Oleksandr Yefremov, head of the Party of Regions faction in the parliament that backed the decision, said the cutback is necessary because lawmakers are busy with
their campaigns for the Oct. 28 parliamentary election.
