Vice Speaker Oleksandr Lavrynovych (elected on the Regions Party's election list) has said that the dismissal of the National Bank of Ukraine's top management is not within the competence of the Ukrainian parliament, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

"We currently have no grounds to consider this question at all, because it is outside the competence of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Today we will hold a long debate, take some decisions, and then we'll say that the Verkhovna Rada and its decisions are being ignored," he said at the parliament's extraordinary meeting on Monday.

Lavrynovych said that the parliament could have considered this question at its special meeting after amending the law on the National Bank of Ukraine and ensuring this law comes into force.

"This discussion will only result in bringing more problems for the stability of the national currency," he said.
