Constitutional Court Judge Dmytro Lylak has asked President Victor Yushchenko to accept his resignation, Secretariat Chief of Staff Viktor Baloha said on Monday, president's press office informed.

“Mr. Lylak has sent a written request to the president to say about his unwillingness to perform his duties. This is quite a serious step, which is an alarming signal to the country’s judicial system,” he said.

Baloha said Lylak had decided to quit because of the role of the Constitutional Court in Ukraine’s political crisis.

“It is important to note that the judge wrote his letter to the head of state, not Valeriy Pshenychny, who calls himself chairman of the Constitutional Court despite being sacked by the president. Mr. Lylak apparently thinks the new leadership of the Constitutional Court is illegal and so appealed to the president,” he said.

Baloha added that Lylak “had all reasons” to leave his job. “The Constitutional Court has stepped on the path of ignoring laws and its position on important political events is not constructive. Let me remind you that the Constitutional Court has not produced any ruling over the past nine months… Mr. Lylak must have had no desire to be a supernumerary in a sad movie called The Constitutional Court of Ukraine,” he said.
