Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy urged President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to sign or veto the law on temporary investigation commission, which regulates the order of impeachment as 112 Ukraine reported.
“The document is still not submitted to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine so I publicly appeal, as at the conciliation board, to the Office of the President of Ukraine to urgently pass any document to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to, if the veto is really imposed, we will be able to overcome this veto after adoption of the Election Code or vote for the offers,” Parubiy said.
He emphasized that it is one of the principal laws for the Verkhovna Rada.
“The mass media spread information that the veto is imposed,” the speaker added.
As it was reported, the document defines the procedure of the impeachment of the President within the activity of special temporary investigation commission (the rest of the stages were regulated by the Constitution and the law on the regulation of Verkhovna Rada).
According to Article No. 94 of the Constitution of Ukraine, the President signs or returns the law with his proposals within 15 days after he received it.
If the President has not returned the document for reconsideration within the set term, the law is considered as approved by the President and has to be signed and published officially.
On June 12, law No. 1098 on temporary investigation commission and special temporary commission which regulates the order of impeachment, was signed by Parliament’s Spokesperson Andriy Parubiy and passed to President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky for signing.
