PACE stressed that the Parliament should be the primary forum for political debate and deliberation between the different political forces in the country. “This is especially important in the context of constitutional reform, which is needed to satisfactorily address a number of crucial outstanding commitments with regard to the judiciary. It is important that the reform of the constitution is based on a consensus between political forces in the country that is as wide as possible. This is essential for the democratic legitimacy of the constitution,” the Assembly representatives said.
They noted that Ukrainian politicians are expected to overcome differences and to seek consensus on constitutional reform.
In addition, the co-rapporteurs welcomed the release of the former interior minister Yuri Lutsenko.
The co-rapporteurs expressed hope that “his release will now soon be followed by further steps to satisfactorily resolve the issue of imprisoned former government officials”.
“This, as well as addressing the deficiencies in the judicial system noted in Assembly Resolution, is crucial if the country is to meet its obligations to the Council of Europe, as well as for the completion of the Association Agreement with the EU, which we wholeheartedly support,” the statement reads.
