Zelensky to be sworn in as Ukraine’s new President on May 20

Reading Time: < 1 minute



The inauguration date for Ukraine’s president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky has been set for May 20 during a parliamentary session in Kiev.

The swearing in will be held amid  tension and mistrust. Zelensky  claimed the Ukrainian Central Election Commission and some parliamentarians were trying to delay the his swearing in ceremony.

As many as seven different bills were registered in parliament with different dates for the inauguration day, which, according to Ukranian law, had to take place no later than June 3.

There is a lot of speculation in the Ukraine that Zelensky , who until now never held political office, will disband parliament.

In Ukraine, a president has to have a legal justification for dismissing parliament.

While Zelensky could use the fact that there is no coalition in the house to do this, it entails a complicated procedure that could be difficult for him to achieve.
