The President should have a chance to do his job according to the Constitution

In my opinion, the draft law proposed by Samopomich to amend the powers of the President contradicts the Constitution.

The country is sick of political intrigues, power grabs and attemps to change the rules midgame. People want changes, action and results.

The powers of the President are clearly outlined in the Constitution. The elected head of state should have a chance to do his job. It’s time for the next President to name his candidates for post of defense and foreign minister, head of the SBU, and everyone he is to appoint under the Constitution. And the Verkhovna Rada should allow him to appoint them as quickly as possible.
