MOSCOW, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea's new Constitution which envisages the election of Head of the Republic by Members of Parliament and keeps the State Council's personnel-related powers intact will be adopted by the Crimean parliament, most likely, before April 10, with the holding of a referendum on the matter being out of question, Grigory Ioffe, head of the Constitution commission and First Deputy Speaker og the State Council of Crimea, told the newspaper Kommersant in an interview published Monday.
"I think we shall propose holding a special session of the Crimean parliament and adopt a new Constitution sometime before April 10. This done, we shall be already able to feel that Crimea is a full-fledged constituent entity of the Russian Federation," the head of the Constitution commission said.
