“In Kirovohrad and Dnipropetrovsk regions are very fast procedure (consideration in the parliamentary committees – ed). It’s literally a month ago, the initiative of people’s deputies. We are also grateful to other committees, which at our request… and I quickly gathered, who two weeks ago who last week and who this week is that we received today in the morning these conclusions. And it gives you the opportunity to start our constitutional changes”, – said the head of the legal Committee Ruslan Knyazevich.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that the Verkhovna Rada registered the bill No. 8329, which includes the renaming of Dnipropetrovsk region in Sichevskyi.
150 deputies submitted to the Parliament draft law No. 8380 to rename Kirovohrad region.
Note, the Constitution and the VR Regulations determine the procedure of changing the Basic law in Ukraine.
To register a bill can only be the President or 150 MPs. The document was then considered by the Committee of the Verkhovna Rada and recommend to Parliament to consider whether a legislative initiative or not.
If we are not talking about the issues for which it is necessary to hold a referendum, in considering under the dome of the draft amendments to the Constitution must receive at least 226 votes to send the document to the constitutional court of Ukraine.
KSU needs to publish a conclusion about whether there is a contradiction initiative article 157 and 158 of the Constitution does not limit the bill of rights and freedom of the person, if the change to the liquidation of the independence or territorial integrity, not changes in conditions of war or emergency, did not consider whether the Parliament the same changes throughout the year and not changed the Rada of the current convocation of the same rules.
The Constitution does not say in terms of what the constitutional court needs to publish its findings.
Only after that deputies can “pre-support” of the bill – just 226 votes. And only during the next session the deputies will be able to adopt the document as a whole as the law – but at least 300 votes.
Adopted according to this procedure, the law must be signed by the speaker of Parliament and the President. In the transitional provisions of the document appears when it is gaining momentum, but it may not take place before publication in the official Gazette.
