Yefremov explains new norms on withdrawal of deputy immunity

Chairman of the Party of Regions faction Oleksandr Yefremov believes that adoption of amendments to the regulations is not only a simplification of procedures for withdrawal of deputy immunity, but also the fulfillment of election promises of all parliamentarians. 
As ForUm correspondent informs, the MP explained that the bill abolishes the norms, which previously require presentation of petition by the Prosecutor General, consideration of the question in the regulations committee and subsequent inclusion of the issue in the agenda. 
Yefremov said that deputy immunity should be withdrawn completely and adoption of amendments to the regulations is only the first step. “My personal opinion is that parliamentary immunity should be removed, I would vote for that,” Yefremov said.
