The Ukrainian Parliament will find 226 votes (the simple majority in the Verkhovna Rada, - 112 International) for the draft law No.9037 about this country's European and Atlantic aspirations. Ivan Krulko, the lawmaker from Batkivshchyna party, said this during the second edition of The Pulse, the big political show at 112 Ukraine TV channel.
'The President filed the draft law on submitting the changes to the Constitution. What is it for? Apparently, this bill can gain 226 votes in the first reading. But why the president only offers this now, not four years ago? Because this is a typical story before the presidential election. Nothing good to tell the society', he said.
According to him, Batkivshchyna will vote for Ukraine's strategic course to the EU. However, this particular bill should be developed further, he said.
The respective draft law, submitted by President Petro Poroshenko, was registered in the Verkhovna Rada on Monday, September 3. The text was uploaded and released via the official website of the Ukrainian Parliament.
