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.
