Appointment of extraordinary elections is the only civilized way of solving the problem of legitimacy of work of the Kyiv City Council, director of the Center for Applied Political Studies "Penta" Volodymyr Fesenko told a press conference, ForUm correspondent reports.

"The civilized method of solving the legitimacy of the Council’s work is extraordinary elections. Meanwhile, all subsequent sessions will be held in the same way as yesterday," he said.

According to him, the legitimacy of the Council’s work is contradictory and uncertain.

The political analyst said that if the powers of the members of the local government, who were elected for five years, are extended for a month or a few months and elections are appointed, then the Kyiv City Council can work. "Although there is a tradition: members of the outgoing council shall make no serious fundamental decisions, in particular, budgetary ones," he added.

In addition, Fesenko said that budgetary issues were deliberately put on the agenda of yesterday's meeting of the Kyiv City Council, as the authorities knew that the opposition would try to disrupt the meeting.
