KIEV, January 15. /TASS/. A commission for preparing amendments to the Ukrainian Constitution will be set up in the near future, first deputy chief of staff Vitaly Kovalchuk said on Thursday.
“A corresponding commission, which will deal with making amendments to the Constitution, will be created in the near future because decentralization of power is the problem that is regulated by the Fundamental Law of Ukraine,” Kovalchuk said.
The amendments to the budget and tax codes will demonstrate that the first steps towards decentralization of power and the handover of real powers will take place, he said.
Earlier, Verkhovna Rada Speaker Vladimir Groisman said the amendments to the Constitution should be prepared till October.
“We’ve started decentralization, including related to the adoption of budgets. Local self-government has opportunities to form them. Now we should hand over the functions of urban development and architecture to the level of local self-government,” Groisman said.
