New parliament to change Constitution?

Member of “Our Ukraine – People’s Self-defense” bloc Taras Stetskiv has no doubts that there will be 300 voices of the People’s deputies, who will make changes in the Constitution in the part of People’s immunity cancellation.“I’m sure that in future parliament we will get 300 voices,” Stetskiv said.

According to him, the political forces, representing the coalition today, will be forced to vote for the People’s Deputies immunity cancellation. And if they do not do this, it will negatively influence their reputation.

Speaking about present version of the Constitution, Stetskiv noted, that it “has made chaos and diarchy”. According to him, “Our Ukraine – People’s Self-defense” doesn’t exclude that new Constitution can be adopted at referendum, as one side may have small advantage over another in future composition of the parliament.

Political bankrupts try to break elections?

First deputy secretary of NSDC Olexander Turchynov declared that intention of some People’s deputies of V convocation to hold illegal session of the VRU is an attempt to break process of political crisis regulation.

According to Turchynov, there is a steady legal consensus concerning the VRU of V convocation does not exist as power institution after resignation of more that 150 people’s deputies. This consensus is proved by judicial decisions and also by public political agreements on high level.

According to Turchynov intention of some People’s deputies to hold VRU session is an attempt to obtain power authorities illegally in order to destabilize situation in Ukraine, to initiate new civil conflict and break process of political crisis regulation.

“Fear of early elections pushes some political bankrupts to make dangerous actions,” he said.
