You're reading: Media: Regions Party could expel Konovaliuk

MP Valeriy Konovaliuk will be expelled from the Regions Party at the next meeting of its political council, the Focus online weekly magazine reported on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

The head of the Donetsk regional campaign headquarters of the Regions
Party, MP Oleksandr Kasianiuk, told Focus that the termination of
membership would serve as punishment for Konovaliuk for violating party
discipline.

Konovaliuk nominated his candidacy for single-member constituency No.
60 in Volnovakha, Donetsk region, thus creating competition for the
official nominee from the Regions Party, CEO of Donetskstal Oleksandr
Ryzhenkov.

“Konovaliuk is against the party’s decision, and he overestimates his
opportunities. If a person wants to run for MP, he should leave his
party card and run as a self-nominee. We have party discipline and at
the next meeting of the political council we will expel Valeriy Illich
[Konovaliuk] from our ranks,” Kasianiuk said.
