KIEV, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s parliament) will create a provisional special commission on carrying out a constitutional reform, Justice Minister Yelena Lukash said.
This issue will be put to vote at the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday, February 4. “Representatives of all factions will take part in the commission,” the minister said, adding that the commission’s task “is to accumulate constitutional changes, which will transform Ukraine into a parliamentary-presidential republic.”
“We’re sure that talks with the opposition will continue,” Lukash said.
Earlier, the opposition said it insisted the 2004 Constitution, which limited the president’s power, be returned.
On February 4, the parliament will gather for a new session after the winter recess.
