Chairman of the parliamentary faction “Batkivchyna” Yuliya Tymoshenko criticizes the judicial reform, for which voted 13 out of 19 members of her faction. As reports the press service of the political force, she called the adopted constitutional amendments unacceptable.
"Legal reform is still ahead, and what happened - this is only an imitation of reform," - Tymoshenko said.
According to her, the reform is "unacceptable for the country", as it leaves a lot of "negative trends" that do not allow forming a politically independent judiciary branch.
“Politicians can’t be involved in the appointment of judges, as it is a direct path to corruption and the political dependence of judges, that is, to an unjust court system. One important step has already been done – we removed the influence of the Parliament and it is right." - Said the leader of " Batkivchyna" .
She explained that the majority of her faction supported the adoption of the judicial reform, because "faction decided freely to vote for changes to the Constitution," and her colleagues believe that "it is better to move forward in small steps than to stand still."
