The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has failed again to elect a member of the external commission to audit activities of the National Anticorruption Bureau. With 226 votes required, 216 lawmakers voted for professor Oleksandra Yanovska of the Taras Shevchenko National University in Kyiv. During the rating voting a total of 111 MPs voted for former United States Attorney Marta Borsch, 22 voted for Serhii Honcharenko, a lawyer and professor at the Academy of Advocacy, 110 for former Spanish prosecutor Carlos Castresana, and 207 for Oleksandra Yanovska. The law on National Anticorruption Bureau envisages annual independent audits of work of the NACB. The audit commission shall comprise of three members and annually appointed by the President, the Verkhovna Rada, and the Cabinet of Ministers. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the parliamentary committee on preventing and combating corruption announced a second competition for membership of the external commission for auditing the operations of the NACB on April 5. Ten candidates applied to participate in the competition. The parliament failed once again to elect a member of the external commission to audit the NACB's activities on March 21.
