Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed the importance of holding fair and transparent local elections - "as we honestly and transparently held elections of the President of Ukraine and elections to Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine," underlined the Head of Government in "Ten Minutes" on Sunday, 18 October.

An honest and transparent election is "when no one takes money for his/her vote and sells the country's future for a few hundred hryvnias."

"Everyone is chattering about combating corruption. So let's combat it, and let everyone starts with himself. Do not sell your vote to corrupt politicians - and thus make a contribution to fighting political corruption in the country," the Prime Minister emphasised.

He has also reminded that the new law on local election provides recalling of a local councilor who cannot cope with his/her responsibilities: "It's a proper precaution against those who join the local authorities with the purpose of improving his/her own life not yours."

"This local election is another step towards changes in the country. Together we are changing the country," said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
