(Feb 02, 2008) On January 10, 2007, the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) of Ukraine amended the Law on Provincial and Local State Administrations, following the recommendation of the President of Ukraine to establish a five-year term of service for the heads of provincial and local executive authorities, whose position will not be political in the future and will not depend on the change of the President or government. According to the Law, all candidates for appointments will be selected from the personnel reserve established by the Governmental Civil Service Department. The reserve will include Ukrainian citizens fluent in the Ukrainian language and having no less than three-years of high-level managerial experience. Appointments will be made by the President upon governmental nomination. The Law establishes the rights and obligations of the administration heads, defining their competence to appoint heads of local agencies, initiate amendments to the national budget and to administrative acts, and disclose all their actions on the administrations' websites. The Law also stipulates relations between the administration heads and heads of business enterprises in the territories they govern.
