The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine will continue the competitive selection of management of state-owned enterprises, despite the attempts to block this process through judicial decisions.

"The Government will not accept any illegal use of the law. And our task today is to keep on the competative selection of the management of those enterprises that are state-owned. We believe that the process of privatization, as well as rebooting the management of state-owned enterprises, is very important anticorruption step that will have a very positive impact on the development of the national economy, " stated Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman at the Ukraine Energy Conference on Thursday.

The Prime Minister believes that decisions of the judges who block the appointment of heads of state enterprises, selected as a result of open, public competitions, "are in the nature of the suspension of" the replacement of enterprises’ management.

"I as Prime Minister of Ukraine have sent to the control judicial bodies an appeal with every fact of the adoption of such a decision, with the names of judges and courts, with the request to cope, in our view, with inappropriate behavior of judges. Now, these proceedings are already in the High Council of Justice, High Qualification Commission of Judges," he informed.

"We honor and respect the law and we will defend the rights of the state to use all legal methods, and we will do it quite efficiently," Volodymyr Groysman emphasized.

The Head of Government noted that many enterprises, which already faced the change of management, selected through competetive mechanisms, also tried to block this process through judicial decisions.
