The profile committee considered the issue of the decision accepted by the Cabinet of Ministers on the formation of the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries

At the beginning of the video conference, the head of the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Daniil Getmantsev recalled that on July 20 of this year, the Verkhovna Rada accepted the law "On state regulation of activities for the organization and conducting of gambling", according to which it is planned to create a Commission on market regulation and appoint the Head and members of this Commission in the form of an open competition.

Further, it was said that on October 21, without holding an open competition according to the rules of the law, the Cabinet of Ministers chose Ivan Rudy as the Head of the Commission, and also appointed Elena Vodolazhko and Yevgeny Getman as members of the Commission for Supervision of the Gambling Business.

Oleg Nemchinov, who was appointed in charge of interviews, explained the situation. He spoke in full about the selection process and interviews, he also dwelled on the fact that now the selected candidates are being tested, and an additional recruitment has been announced for some vacant positions.

"The Cabinet of Ministers was guided by the procedure provided for by the Law of Ukraine "On Civil Service" for holding a competition for vacant civil service positions of  "A" category. And, since for the period of quarantine established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, the effect of this Law in terms of public service has been stopped, persons to such positions are appointed by the mechanism of  interviews. "

Also, it was discussed the point regarding the collision, which is present in the Law "On State Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries". In one part, it is indicated that the competition for the selection of members of the Commission should be conducted by the Cabinet of Ministers with the involvement of candidates from the relevant committee to the competition commission. In another part, it is said that this should be a commission from the highest corps of the civil service according to the general procedure for selecting civil servants. The Cabinet of Ministers independently, without appropriate powers, chose one of these norms.

The final decision on this issue was: to send a request to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on the procedure for making a decision on the establishment of the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries, as well as the approval of the Head and its members.
