KIEV, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. A decision to change the Ukrainian Constitution may be taken only by referendum, a parliament member from the Party of Regions, Anna Gherman, said on Friday.
Such decisions may be taken only by referendum. However, emissaries from the opposition were going in the parliament and trying to persuade deputies to support the constitutional reform, giving some promises, she said.
As was earlier reported, the Verkhovna Rada will form a special commission on February 4 on a constitutional reform in the country.
Justice Minister Yelena Lukash said earlier that deputies from all the parties would be in the commission, whose task is to work out constitutional changes to switch to a parliamentary-presidential republic.
The opposition insists on returning to the 2004 Constitution, which limited presidential powers in favor of the parliament.
