KIEV, April 6. /TASS/. The best option for Ukraine will be the parliamentary-presidential form of government, like the one it has today, Ukraine’s former President Leonid Kuchma said on Monday after the first meeting of the Ukrainian Constitutional Commission.
"The issue of principal importance for me today was the confirmation of the parliamentary-presidential form of government. It was explicitly said by President (Petro) Poroshenko," Kuchma, a member of the Constitutional Commission, said. "If the president has no support in the parliament, it will be impossible to work."
"So, the parliament and the government it forms are to be responsible for the economy," Kuchma’s presidential fund cited him as saying.
"This is the biggest problem, for, as far as we can see, there is no constitutional majority — I mean coalition — on one of the bills. So, serious efforts are needed to have the entire parliament take part in this process," Kuchma said.
The next meeting of the Constitutional Commission is expected to be held on April 15.
