Yesterday, June 16, it became known that the head of the Lviv Regional State Administration Maksym Kozytskyi joined the Servant of the People party and headed its regional branch. The civil servant stated that he was ready to lead the process of creating a center of political force in the Lviv region.
But can a civil servant, who has to take care of our region, at the same time defend the political issues of a certain political force at the local level? No, because then the work of the head of the Lviv region will become a pre-election campaign, and the regional state administration will become the election headquarters of the “Servants of the People”.
Even before the election, a civil servant must not lead any political force. He must work for the state, not for the current government. Today, the Lviv region faces the risk of de facto being left without a head who, together with his team, will be involved in the elections and the promotion of the party.
