KIEV, August 19 /TASS/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) may meet in extraordinary session on August 27, Ukraine’s Internet edition Apostrophe reported on Wednesday.
Previous reports said the extraordinary session could take place on August 31.
"We are polling the deputies in our faction to know if they think it is possible to hold the session on August 27," the edition quoted deputy Pavel Pinzenyk from the People’s Front party as saying.
Pinzenyk is convinced that a considerable part of his party’s parliamentary faction is going to gather for the session. He clarified that the deputies were planning to pass amendments to Ukraine’s constitution in part of decentralization in the first reading.
A number of deputies from the Petro Porosehnko Bloc said that a similar poll was being conducted in their parliamentary faction. Ukraine’s Self-Help Party told Apostrophe that its deputies were planning to attend the session.
"I think that all of us will be present," Self-Help’s deputy Yaroslav Markevich said.
Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc Deputy Yevgeny Murayev said that deputies from his faction would attend the parliament’s extraordinary session. At the same time, he said that Rada’s secretariat had not yet confirmed if the session is going to take place on August 27.
