Members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) will consider the functioning of democratic institutions in Ukraine on Thursday, January 26. This issue was approved for Thursday's agenda, according to Chairman of the Ukrainian Delegation to PACE, MP Ivan Popescu.

"The agenda of the Assembly has been approved. The issue on Ukraine remains for Thursday, the last paragraph," he said, according to UKRINFORM.

Popescu also said that the Bureau of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe elected people's deputies (Party of Regions) Yulia Liovochkina member of the Monitoring Committee of the Assembly.

"It's absolutely democratic approach, the vote is secret, but then voting results are made public," he said.

Thus, from now the PACE Monitoring Committee, which deals with the fulfillment of obligations of the Council of Europe member states to the organization, is composed of two Ukrainians. From the majority - Yulia Liovochkina and from the opposition - Olha Herasymiuk (Our Ukraine).

In addition, newly elected president of the PACE Jean-Claude Mignon did not support the proposition by European People's party to deprive the Ukrainian delegation of plenary powers. "To deprive the plenary powers is the last weapon, when all the roads are passed," he told a press conference in Strasburg.

As a reminder, the European People's party proposed to deprive the Ukrainian delegation of plenary powers because three members of the delegation, submitted as representatives of the opposition, in fact are representatives of the ruling party. The proposition was not supported by PACE.
