The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has to adopt the defense draft laws, Electoral Code and law on language this autumn. Andry Paruby, the speaker of the parliament claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.

"The security issue remains to be the most important for us. I want to remind that at the end of the previous session we adopted the law on the national security that provides the implementation and adoption of the number of the next laws. The law on the SBU, law on the intelligence bodies, the law on the state defensive order are among them and I remind you that it is our commitment, the law on the detached parliamentarian committee that will provide the parliamentarian control over the security sector and intelligence bodies," Paruby noted.

He emphasized the importance of the information security issue.

"I talked to Head of Committee Viktoria Syumar to prepare the offers on the information security because if we cannot protect our internal informational space that it is hard to talk about the protection from the external aggression. Unfortunately, I can confirm that the internal informational space was attacked, also by people who openly work for the country-aggressor," he said.

Paruby expressed the hope that the draft budget for 2019 will be registered in time (September 15) and the MPs will make it discuss the budget before its adoption.

"The important block is the elective one. We begin the election year and it will be important this autumn to finish the issue of the forming of the Central Election Commission. I remind about the Electoral Code as the biggest draft law on the number of the amendments. I talked to the head of the task groups Chernenko and I urged him to maximally speed up the consideration of the amendments so we will be able to consider the Electoral Code understanding its volume and it can take two plenary weeks, but we should come and consider the Electoral Code this autumn," parliament's speaker noted.

Moreover, he expressed the belief that the parliament should decide on the language issue.

"Also, I am sure that this autumn, at this session, we should consider the law on language. As the Constitutional Court canceled the so-called law of Kolesnichenko-Kivalov (The law on the principles of the state language policy), the legislative vacuum occurred and we should fill it. There are five registered draft laws; the majority of them are already considered by the committee and I urged the parties last spring to hold the discussion so we will be able to follow one negotiated draft law," Paruby said.

According to him, in autumn the Verkhovna Rada will consider the draft laws necessary for the eurointegration and implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU.

"And, of course, there are the amendments to the Constitution. I remind that the Constitutional Court made a decision on two draft law on the inviolability and we should consider these two bills and made a decision on them. I remind that the decision should be made by 226 voices this session and by 330 during the next one, but we should consider this issue in autumn," the speaker concluded.
