Volodymyr Lytvyn, being the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, is obliged to sign the laws passed by the Parliament, the leader of the Party of Regions faction Oleksandr Yefremov told reporters at a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.
Yefremov explained that the legislation does not provide for bringing the speaker to responsibility. "There is no stipulated punishment for not signing, it's a drawback of our legislation. But there is also no provision allowing him to sign. And let's be frank, the signature of the speaker under the document certifies only the document corresponds to the voting of MPs and nothing more," he said.
