Head of the Kyiv city state administration Oleksandr Popov advances initiative to hold a city referendum in order to solve urgent problems of the capital. According to Popov, "referendums must become the norm of Kyiv self-government."

According to the law, referendum is a direct vote in which an entire electorate is asked to decide on national or local issues.

Analysts note that the idea of holding city referendum in Kyiv can become an important event in social life, as it is one of the basic forms of democracy.

According to director of GMT-Group analytic company Anatoly Lutsenko, "the practice of holding local referendums is common for countries of Western Europe."

"Ukraine has announced its Eurointegration course, hence it should use the experience of European countries. If such form of people's participation in the city life becomes productive, Ukraine may gain some points," the analyst says.
