The Constitution Court of Ukraine recognized that the decree of President Volodymyr Zelensky about the dissolution of the Ukrainian Parliament is a constitutional one. The press service of the authority reported this on June 20.

The court mentioned that the Parliament of the 7th Convocation made amendments to the basic law of Ukraine in February 2014. That, specifically, included the amendment, which allows President to cease the Parliament's authority in case it fails to shape the coalition of MP factions in the Parliament (this is required by Article 83 of the Constitution).

At that, the 8th convocation's Parliament, elected at the snap election in October 2014, did not resume the legal regulation of the issue of ceasing the Parliament's authority, if the coalition of MP factions is not shaped in Ukraine.

'The constitution conflict occurred between the President and the Verkhovna Rada, based on the reasons for early stoppage of authority, which has no legal decision, since the basic law of Ukraine does not define the order of stopping the activity of the MP factions' coalition in the Rada', reads the message by the press office.
