Verkhovna Rada speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn believes that the number of parliamentary committees should be reduced, but supposes that there will be even more of them in the new Parliament.

"In my opinion, the current number of committees is excessive. Some of them are no longer needed in relation to judicial reform. If put the interests of the state first, the number of committees should be reduced to two dozen. Now there are 27 committees in the Parliament," he said.

At the same time, the speaker noted that "such an approach would not be accepted" and did not rule out that in the search for a compromise the number of committees can be even increased.

Also, in his opinion, it would be logical to give the right to the largest faction to choose the committees. "I do not amuse myself with illusions. Most likely, this won’t work. Then the factions should agree on the committees for opposition, for example, the committee on freedom of expression and information and others. But this will be the subject of inter-faction bargaining," he said.

Responding to the question what will be with single-mandate deputies in this regard, Lytvyn said,
"Single-mandate deputies not included in this or that faction are unlikely to get leadership positions. I do not rule out that the faction will show contempt for them even in supporting their entry into a committee".
