The Constitutional Court’s decision on the legitimacy of the ruling coalition contradicts the Constitution and laws of Ukraine because it is based on the law on rules of procedure of the Verkhovna Rada, which it is subordinate to the Constitution.

"The decision in September 2008 was issued when there was no law on rules of parliamentary procedure, and now we must understand relevant dispositions of the Constitution in the context of the law on rules of procedure," said opposition minister Roman Zvarych, according to Yulia Tymoshenko's official website.

Meanwhile, opposition justice minister Olena Shustik emphasized that the "recently issued decision contradicts the Constitution and many laws, in particular the law on the Constitutional Court."

"The decision by the Constitutional Court now puts parliamentary rules of procedure above the Constitution, in other words the primary law in our country is now the Verkhovna Rada’s rules of procedure," she added.

Olena Shustik also announced that during the meeting of the opposition government they will approve the draft parliamentary resolution, to be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada next Wednesday, that would create a temporary investigative committee to look into "the knowingly unlawful decision issued by the judges of the Constitutional Court and dismissing them."
