Inauguration of new Ukraine president is set for May 20
KIEV (Reuters) – Ukraine’s incoming President Volodymyr Zelenskiy will be inaugurated on May 20, a parliamentary vote decided on Thursday.
Parliament is responsible for setting the inauguration date.
Zelenskiy has pushed lawmakers to allow him to be inaugurated in May, which might give him scope to dissolve parliament and call a snap election while his popularity is high.
