KIEV, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko told journalists on Monday that Ukrainian parliament would have to decide whether a referendum on Ukraine’s state structure should be held on May 25 alongside Ukraine’s presidential elections.
“This question lies in the political field. A relevant decision will be passed by the parliament,” the justice minister said, adding a nationwide referendum could stabilize the situation in Ukraine.
The proposal to hold the referendum on the day of elections is prompted by desire to save budget funds.
Earlier on Monday, Ukraine’s Acting President and Parliament Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said an All-Ukraine referendum could be held alongside the presidential elections on May 25.
A law “On the All-Ukraine Referendum” was adopted in Ukraine in November 2012. Experts consider the document to be imperfect because it allows manipulating public opinion.
