Batkivshchyna leader Yulia Tymoshenko says her party has a plan of 8 legislative initiatives for the first 100 hours of the new government.
“In a parliament with a strong representation of Batkivshchyna, we propose a plan of 8 bills for the first 100 hours,” Yulia Tymoshenko said during the presentation of the plan.
The first draft law relates to the establishment of a just price for gas for the population.
“Tariffs for heat and hot water will be cut in half. This requires all but one legislative hour,” she explained.
The second bill would introduce compulsory health insurance.
“Health insurance will be paid by employers, who will receive tax benefits, and those who can’t work- pensioners, the disabled, children – will get health insurance from the state,” she said
The third bill would raise the guaranteed pension to the subsistence minimum.
“Pensions cannot be lower than the living wage set by law of 3094 hryvnias. Right now, the Groysman government is paying 71% of pensioners less than that,” she added.
The fourth bill would introduce payments to families after the birth of a child.
The fifth would extend the moratorium on the sale of agricultural land.
The sixth bill on deoffshorization will “reduce the level of the shadow economy and in the next three years bring an additional 320 billion hryvnais to the state budget.”
The seventh bill is a new Tax Code.
The eighth is a bill on the absence of a statute of limitations for war crimes.
The politician believes this package of bills will give a push to change and give people a sense that the country is changing.
“I think that all the factions in the coalition can propose their ambitious plans for the first 100 legislative hours. This is what we propose today and what we will insist on in the new parliament,” Yulia Tymoshenko said.
