President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has signed a law that removes the provisions limiting the powers of the first deputy and deputy ministers from the vetoed law on the resumption of tenders for public service positions if the position of a minister is vacant.

That follows from a statement posted on the Presidential Office website, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has signed the Law 1285-IX On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Concerning the Resumption of tenders for Positions in the Civil Service and Other Issues in the Civil Service adopted by the Verkhovna Rada on February 23, taking into account the proposals of the head of state," the statement says.

According to the law, taking into account the proposals of the President, the Rada removed from the law On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Concerning the Resumption of tenders for the Occupation of Civil Service Positions and Other Issues in the Civil Service the norms on limiting the execution of powers by deputy ministers if the position of a minister is vacant.

Thus, according to the adopted amendments, the previous provisions of the law remain in force. According to them, the acting a minister has all the powers of a minister, and his candidacy can be put to the vote without restrictions.

In particular, he/she will be able to administer the budgetary funds allocated to the ministry and carry out personnel appointments, which he had previously been deprived of.

According to the document, it is possible to appoint an acting minister for an indefinite period; earlier in the law contained a limit of 60 days.

The law also provides that within six months from the date of its entry into force, tenders must be announced for positions held by persons under a civil service contract for the period of quarantine established by the Cabinet of Ministers in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on February 23, the Rada adopted the second reading of this bill with the President's proposals.

On February 16, the Rada renewed the broad powers of an acting minister and tenders for civil service but limited his/her powers to 60 days and determined that the candidate the Rada refused to appoint cannot be appointed as an acting minister.

On February 18, Zelenskyy vetoed the law on the restoration of the broad powers of an acting minister and civil service tenders.

On December 17, the Rada refused to appoint Vitrenko as the first deputy prime minister – energy minister (the Cabinet of Minister's initiative supported by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was also supported by 188 deputies).
