The Leader of the party Sluga Narodu (Servant of the People), Oleksandr Korniyenko, expected for provision of the referendum on the sale of agricultural land to foreigners by the end of 2020, which requires the further adoption of the law "On the referendum", reported the member of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, on March 31.
According to him to date the reporting draft law was already registered in the parliament, but the emergency situation regime slightly adjusted the plans. When the Verkhovna Rada comes back from the quarantine to work, the people's deputies will begin to register and adopt the draft law "On the referendum". And when the reporting law comes into force, then the party Sluga Narodu can start initiating new referendums, including those on allowance of foreigners to take part in purchasing or selling of agricultural lands. Next year, perhaps by the time the law on agricultural land turnover comes into force, the authorities will receive the objective answers to the questions from the people.
According to O.Korniyenko, the draft law on land reform made out all paragraphs in such way to launch the land market as safely as possible.
As a reminder, on March 31 the Verkhovna Rada adopted the draft law on agricultural lands turnover. 259 members of parliament voted for adoption of the law.
