Heads of coalition factions suggest enabling Rada to sack NABU chief

The bill also allows MPs to dismiss heads of SAP and SBI.

Heads of Petro Poroshenko Bloc and People's Front factions in parliament, Artur Herasymov and Maksym Bourbaki, submitted a bill, that gives parliament the right to dismiss heads of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), the head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office, and his deputies, as well as director of the State Bureau of Investigation .

Currently, the NABU director can be dismissed upon the negative results of the bureau's audit. However, the auditors of the NABU have not yet been appointed.

The bill provides that the Rada should have the right to dismiss the director of the NABU without conducting an audit on the initiative of the president, the Cabinet of Ministers or 150 people's deputies.

The bill also suggests give lawmakers the right to dismiss any member of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.
