Justice Minister Mykola Onishchuk is convinced that January 17, 2010, is the only constitutional date for holding the presidential elections, he said it on air at the First Public TV channel.

The Justice Minister supported a call from VR Chairman Volodymyr Lytvyn to speed up consideration of the issue about the data of the presidential elections. "Since it is difficult to call the political situation in Ukraine as stable, the sooner the Parliament takes a decision about determining the election date, it will have a more positive influence on the political process".

On April 1, the Verkhovna Rada appointed the presidential elections for October 25, 2009. 401 people's deputies voted for the relevant resolution. In his turn, Viktor Yushchenko approached the Constitutional Court regarding constitutionality of this decision. On May 12, the Constitutional Court recognized the VR resolution about appointing the current presidential elections for October 25 as unconstitutional.
