The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has confirmed the right of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to submit and consider draft bills on denouncement of international agreements. The decision has been announced today, following the inquiry of 47 MPs.

On January 11, 2012 the parliament of Ukraine introduced changes to the VR regulations, according to which MPs were banned from submitting and considering draft bills on denouncement of international agreements. According to the introduced amendments, the right was conferred exclusively to the President and the Cabinet of Ministers.

The Constitutional Court has ruled that according to the article 93 of the Constitution, the right to legislation initiative belong to the President, members of the parliament, Cabinet of Ministers and National Bank. "The Constitution of Ukraine does not provide for norms, which ban MPs from submitting draft bills on ratification and denouncement of international agreements," the court's decision says.

The Constitutional Court has recognized the amendments unconstitutional and cancelled the resolution of January 11. The decision of the Constitutional Court is final and cannot be appealed.
