Victor Yushchenko sent a letter to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to urge parliamentarians to observe constitutional norms and immediately create conditions for all newly appointed judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine to take an oath, the President's press office reported.

The Head of State is convinced that by neglecting laws and his recent appeal, the Parliament undermines its authority and might even make Ukrainians believe there is some political implication in this delay.

“The judges of the Constitutional Court have not taken their oath yet, and so there is an unprecedented and inadmissible political and legal collision,” he wrote. “This situation makes the people disrespect the authorities for being unable to manage state affairs.”

The President stressed that the Constitutional Court of Ukraine was one of the key factors to promote the rule of law in the country.
Yushchenko reiterated that Article 19 of the Constitution of Ukraine obliged state agencies to act according to the constitution.

“In this context, we should remember that members of parliament are delegated to make sure judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine take their oath,” he said. “As guarantor of the Constitution, I insist on the necessity to make the newly elected judges to do that in accordance with Article 17 of the Law on the Constitutional Court of Ukraine.”
