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.

"The Article 94 of the Constitution clearly declares that the speaker of the Parliament shall sign the law and immediately send it to the President, and there is no pending procedure," he said.

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.

Yefremov said that he already has the legal expert conclusions on the issue. However, he did not explain its peculiarities to the correspondents. "I would not go into details, it is a long conversation, a discussion of a legal nature. The fact is we have the opportunity to make further steps on this matter," he concluded.
