KIEV, November 12. /TASS/. The reform of the Ukrainian parliament will be presented in January 2016, Verkhovna Rada Speaker Volodymyr Groysman said on Thursday.
"In accordance with the memorandum that I signed with [European Parliament President] Martin Schultz, we will unveil the reform of the Ukrainian parliament in January. It will be an electronic parliament, we will raise the issue of new rules, new procedures that are fully in line with European standards," UNN agency quoted Groysman as saying.
Groysman said the reform will allow to make the work of the Verkhovna Rada transparent and also to bring it closer to European standards.
The speaker stressed that the number of deputies will remain unchanged. "The reform does not deal with changing the number of deputies. I am confident that certain optimization may occur but it is a constitutional issue. It is hard to say when this optimization will occur and what exactly it will be," he noted.
On 15 January 2015, the third session of the Verkhovna Rada of the seventh convocation will meet for the last time.
