KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. A new version of the Constitution of Ukraine may be ready for March 2014, leader of the Batkivshchina party Arseny Yatsenyuk said behind the scenes of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) extraordinary session on Wednesday.
“The amendments to the Constitution are a motive for deep discussions. The Verkhovna Rada may approve them. But we’d like the Constitutional Court to abolish them and the situation to normalize,” the opposition party leader said.
“We also seek to create a constitutional commission that will decide on the adoption of a new version of the Constitution,” he said, adding, “The commission will decide on turning to the parliamentary-presidential system.”
The authorities believe that it “will take one year to make amendments to the Constitution”, Yatsenyuk said.
