Involving the leadership of the Verkhovna Rada in negotiations with the IMF will increase chances of consideration of the package of reform draft laws aimed at restoring people's trust towards financial and banking activities, restoring financing of business and recovery of the economy from the crisis, Serhii Rybalka, MP, member of the VR faction of the Radical Party, said on one of the Ukrainian TV channels. «Unfortunately, I do not see any cooperation with the parliament [on part of the IMF]. The President, the Prime Minister, the National Bank [meet with the IMF representatives], but I don't see the parliament," he said, adding that during his recent visit to Washington he was reassured that such meeting will take place.
Rybalka specified that it did not matter, whether the meeting would be public or not. However, it is important that it takes place and helps begin consideration of the corresponding initiatives in the parliament, he said.
He also pointed that the currency government is not interesting in reforming this sector of the economy despite the fact that this actually guarantees stable growth and improvement of standards of living of all citizens in the country.
"Only by developing our own economy can we raise pensions, educational allowances," said Rybalka.
"Take the Law on the Credit Register that we passed last week. 226 votes – on the verge of what is required. As they said, we barely got there. From the fourth attempt! Why? Because at the moment, there are no interested parties that would push the laws reforming financial and banking sector through," he said, adding that this law along helps fight fraud, reduce risks of financial institutions, which, in the end protects the interests of ordinary depositors.
The former VR Financial Policy and Banking Committee chair also added that similar draft laws have already been developed and the faction of the Radical Party in the parliament is prepared to support themand has a number of initiatives aimed at development and support of the domestic production, stabilization of the situation in the financial and banking system, creation of new jobs and increasing people's incomes.
"99% of these draft laws have already passed through the specialized committee," said Rybalka.
