On December 7, 2021, during the eleventh meeting, the selection commission for the election of the SAPO head finally completed the epic with an assessment of the practical tasks of the candidates. Members of the commission from the Verkhovna Rada and the Council of Prosecutors gave the following points:

Kateryna Koval: 15 points to Andrii Syniuk and 18 points to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Olena Busol: 12 points to Andrii Syniuk, 16.5 points to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Andrii Hudzhal: 18 points to Andrii Syniuk, 16.5 to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Drago Kos: 10.5 points to Andrii Syniuk and 18 points to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Roman Kuibida: 13.5 points to Andrii Syniuk, 19.5 points — to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Viacheslav Navrotskyi: 13.5 points to Andrii Syniuk, 16.5 points to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Bohdan Romaniuk: 10.5 points to Andrii Syniuk, 19.5 points to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Yevhenii Sobol: 18 points — to Andrii Syniuk, 18 points to Oleksandr Klymenko;

Nona Tsotsoria: 10.5 points to Andrii Syniuk, 19.5 points to Oleksandr Klymenko.

As a result, Oleksandr Klymenko received an average of 18 points (162 points from the commission in general), while Andrii Syniuk — an average of 14 points (121.5 in general). According to the methodology, the average score for a practical task should be added to the total number of points of each candidate. Let us remind you that before the stage of practical task, candidates had in total: Klymenko — 212 points, Syniuk — 195 points.

However, the adoption of these results was preceded by a heated discussion.

Members of the commission from the Verkhovna Rada Andrii Hudzhal, Yevhen Sobol, and chair of the commission Kateryna Koval disrupted the vote at the first attempt to approve the results. A stumbling point was the “free interpretation” of the methodology, namely of paragraph 4.1.1. This paragraph stipulates that the assessment of the practical task block for checking candidates’ mastery in professional practical skills is carried out by members of the selection commission participating in the commission meeting. Moreover, the points of some members of the commission were questionable.

In the end, a common solution was found, and the SAPO commission published the points of the finalists of the competition. In addition, the commission decided on the date of the last stage of interviews — it will take place on December 21 at 10:00 am. 

In total, the meeting on December 7 lasted 4.5 hours.
