Poroshenko said in an interview with DW that the tender commission was reshuffled after criticism was made by the EU and representatives of Ukrainian civil society. "The next day [after the criticism was made], we removed these people from the tender commission and included those who were proposed by the EU, including Mr. Kessler [Giovanni Kessler, an Italian prosecutor and Director-General of the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF)]," Poroshenko said on the Conflict Zone program that will be broadcasted on the English language version of DW TV on November 11. The president said that the new anti-corruption system will launch on December 1. "The system should have the trust of Ukrainian citizens, Ukrainian authorities, and our European and U.S. partners," he said. As reported, Ukraine and the EU have reached a preliminary agreement on replacing candidates delegated from Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office to the commission to select candidates for the post of anti-corruption prosecutor.
