The Ukrainian Parliament will be able to pass the draft laws that the MPs sent to Constitutional Court on Tuesday; however, this will not be possible until February 2020. Fedir Venislavsky, representative of the President of Ukraine in this Court said so as Interfax-Ukraine wrote.

"The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has a month or two to consider these. After the CS looks into the draft bills and rules whether they match the provisions of Articles 156 and 157 of Constitution of Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada will be able to pass them with the majority of votes. We hope it will happen at the next session that began today (Tuesday, September 3, - 112 International); and during the next session that is supposed to open on the first Tuesday of February 2020, the Verkhovna Rada will be able to pass them to the full extent, if 300 or more MPs support that", Venislavsky explained.

September 3, the Ukrainian Parliament turned to the Constitutional Court with the request to assess the correspondence of seven bills to the basic law of Ukraine. The initiatives concern canceling the lawyers' monopoly; sharing the legislative initiative with citizens; presidential powers to create regulatory bodies, assign and dismiss directors of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau and the State Bureau of Investigations; assignment of the Parliamentary ombudsmen, shortening the number of MPs from 450 to 300; punishment for non-personal voting and unjustified absence; the right of the Parliament to create the auxiliary authorities.
