Members of the European Parliament oppose the initiative of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to dissolve the Constitutional Court (CCU). Deputies believe that the CCU should be renewed, not dissolved. This was reported by Deutsche Welle.
"What the president is suggesting is a violation of the Constitution. The Constitutional Court cannot simply be liquidated. (...) The unconstitutional rulings of the Constitutional Court cannot be cured by unconstitutional measures of the Verkhovna Rada," the statement said.
MEPs called on Zelensky "not to respond to violations of law with other violations."
As we reported earlier, the criminal responsibility for a false declaration was recognized by the Constitutional Court as such that does not correspond to the Main law of Ukraine.
As a result, NACP was obliged to close the register of electronic declarations in order to fulfill the court's decision.
The agency believes that the judges canceled the criminal responsibility in their own interests.
Meanwhile, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky submitted draft law No.4288 for the Parliament's consideration. The bill offers MPs to deprive the Constitutional Court judges of their authorities and to restore the law on declaration that the Court had previously canceled.
