KIEV, January 31, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s constitution may be amended not earlier than this autumn, Verkhovna Rada (parliament) speaker Vladimir Rybak said on Friday.
“A minimal time limit for introducing such amendments is two sessions,” he told journalists. “So, it will be possible to amend the constitution in 2014.”
To do that, he noted, a move to this effect was to be initiated at the next session that was due to begin on February 4. “After that, we will be able to introduce amendments during the next session in the autumn,” if such amendments would not require a referendum, he said.
