KIEV, February 03, 2:34 /ITAR-TASS/. At the Ukrainian parliament's new session. opening this coming Tuesday, Verkhovna Rada deputies must "really look for ways out of the deep crisis in the country," believes Arseny Yatsenyuk, leader of the faction of the oppositional party Batkivshchina (Fartherland). "The parliament can do much to solve tasks which are facing the country now acutely as never before, with one of them being the need to revert to the Constitutio of 2004," he emphasized.
Yatsenyuk said the opposition factions intend to put this item as the first one on the agenda of the new session. "It is uttely important to revert to the 2004 Constitution which stipulated that part of major powers of the president devolve upon parliament. This will enable Verkhovna Rada, in particular, to form a government, and influence the appointment of chiefs of security organizations," the faction leader said. He expects that the process of constitutional changes will begin from Tuesday and that that will become a real stride on the way to establishing political stability in the country.
Yatsenyuk expressed confidence that in order to revert to the 2004 Constituion, the parliament may pass one resolution. "It is enough for us to vote on one act within the parliament's walls,"he said.
