Today, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine is to announce its verdict on the constitutionality of the provisions of the Rules requiring the participation of 300 MPs to vote for the election or the desmissal of the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada. The well-known lawyer and politician Viktor Medvedchuk gave his comment on the possible decision of the CCU.

"In my opinion, there should be no surprises. The verdict of the Court is quite predictable, since the norm providing for obligatory voting of 300 MPs is obviously unconstitutional", the leader of the Ukrainian choice political movement said.  “The Constitution of Ukraine does not provide for anything like this! And this provision was introduced initially in the Rules of the Verkhovna Rada, and then in the law on the Rules. It was probably done on the initiative of Volodymyr Lytvyn with clear, self-serving purpose - to protect himself against the threat of dismissal before the expiry of his term. In essence, the personal interest of Lytvyn "fixed up" the Ukraine’s Constitution. This provision should have been cancelled long before," Viktor Medvedchuk said.
