KIEV, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday will consider a draft law to form a special commission to change the Constitution, the leader of the opposition Batkivshchyna party's parliament members, Arseny Yatsenyuk, said at the extraordinary meeting of the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday.
"We are preparing a corresponding draft law to set up a special commission to make changes to the Constitution," Yatsenyuk said. The issue will be considered during the evening meeting.
Lawmakers intend to change the Constitution with the aim to redistribute presidential powers in favor of the parliament and change the presidential-parliamentary system for parliamentary-presidential, on which the opposition insists.
