Zelensky pledges to replace Ukrainian prosecutor general, other members of 'old team'

KYIV. April 22 (Interfax) - Volodymyr Zelensky, who is winning the Ukrainian presidential election, has pledged to appoint a new prosecutor general in Yury Lutsenko's stead and to reshuffle the administration.

"Lutsenko belongs to the old team. We will appoint new people, and Mr. Lutsenko will not be the only one concerned," Zelensky said at a press briefing at his campaign headquarters.

He said there would be a separate press briefing dedicated to appointments.

"Do you know that the National Bank chairman has seven-year tenure? We have presented all experts of our team, the Servant of the People party, engaged in the electoral process. We will present our team [...] in the near future," Zelensky said.

He added that he planned to cut the size of the presidential administration and to move from Bankova Street (the current address of the presidential administration).
