In his report, Dean of the Faculty of Law of ZNU, PhD (Law), Assoc. Prof. Petro Khryapins’ky drew attention to the complexity of starting conditions of the election campaign. First of all, Ukraine is unfortunately turning into a country with permanent election process, and people are tired of it. At the same time, socio-economic situation is rather difficult. Second, people’s expectations for positive changes in different spheres of life do not materialize. Besides, the new technology of election campaign and new legislative basis, providing the elections by party-rolls only, seem to be too difficult. All this makes us think about possible results of the lections, that depend on our civil position.    

Scientists of ZNU Faculty of Sociology and Governing, as well as scholars from UH “ZISMG” and Zaporizhzhya Institute of Law of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine took part in the topic discussion.
