President: Judicial reform will definitely be completed

Judicial reform in Ukraine will definitely be completed, but it is a long and difficult process, said President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during the press marathon "30 questions to the President of Ukraine".

The President stressed that the implementation of this reform is supported by the Office of the President of Ukraine. And on the initiative of the President, the Verkhovna Rada has already adopted fundamental laws on the work of the High Qualification Commission of Judges (HQCJ) and the High Council of Justice (HCJ).

"This is my initiative, and you know very well that the Servant of the People party and some other deputies of some groups voted for these laws. The majority answered the voting question. Then they (these laws - ed.) must be implemented," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The President noted that the laws on the HQCJ and the HCJ were adopted in exactly the format on which there was a consensus in Ukrainian society, in the judiciary and which was supported by Ukraine's international partners.

At the same time, the Head of State is convinced that the process of reforming the judicial system will eventually be completed.

"All this will be done. All these laws, which were submitted from us to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine - no matter how difficult it is - will be completed," he stressed.

With regard to the Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office, the President expressed his conviction that the election of the head of the SAP would take place by the end of the year.

"I was approached by our Western partners, ambassadors. They see that we are moving forward. I really want us to be able to elect the head of the SAP by the end of the year. I fully support that," Volodymyr Zelenskyy summed up.
