Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the competition for the head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) will be announced in the near future.
"As for the NABU: the competition should be announced, there should be a full commission. I'm sure in the coming days or weeks this will be done," Zelensky said at a briefing with the Prime Minister of Norway in Kiev, answering questions from journalists.
At the same time, according to the head of state, the appointment of a special anti-corruption prosecutor is being handled by a special commission.
"As for the head of the SAP: not the president, but another commission decides who will win. After that it is decided by the prosecutor general, not the president," he added.
The head of the state also emphasized that after Ukraine was granted the status of a candidate state to the European Union, it "was given a number of recommendations for the implementation of reforms, not requirements" to become a full-fledged member of the EU.
As for other reforms, in addition to anti-corruption, Zelensky noted that all of them will be completed and voted on.
"There is a very great trust in Ukraine (on the part of the EU). Everyone can see how we are moving forward on our way to full EU membership. All the reforms will be done and voted on. I have no doubts whatsoever. Everything will be done in the order of priorities for our state," he concluded.
