KIEV, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Parliamentary faction of Ukraine’s Party of Regions supports the idea of changes to the constitution, the faction’s leader MP Alexander Yefremov told a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada’s / parliament’s/ conciliation council on Monday.

“We are for making changes to the constitution in strict compliance with the 13th chapter of the basic law. If we want to make a state for future, not for some short period, we should make changes evolutionally,” the deputy said.

He suggested organizing a special commission, which would work on drafting changes to the constitution. The commission could use earlier experience of the country’s constitution assembly, he added.

From the commission, a draft should go to the Venice Commission, and later on to the country’s Constitution Court, Yefremov said.

The member of the parliament also stressed the Verkhovna Rada should resume its regular work, as “the latest socially important law was adopted on December 19, 2013.”

“The long-lasting political crisis risks developing into an economic crisis,” he said. “Everyone will be responsible for it – both the majority and the opposition.
