President Volodymyr Zelensky intends to personally visit the session of the Constitution Court of Ukraine, where the case on the legitimacy of his case on the dissolution of the parliament will be considered. He reported that on Facebook.

“Tomorrow, the Constitution Court of Ukraine will consider the issue of the dissolution of the parliament. I was invited to the session. It will be the first case over the 28-year history of independent Ukraine, when the president will come to the session of the Constitution Court. That’s how it is going to be, not the other way around, when “the owner calls his servants, his judges to his cabinet”. I will definitely come,” the Ukrainian president assured.

The will of people, I will always defend it. I support you, and tomorrow I will feel your support,” the President said.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky officially dissolved the Verkhovna Rada and appointed the snap elections for July 21. The Cabinet of Ministers should provide the financing of the elections.

On May 24, the electoral process kicked off in Ukraine.

According to the Ukrainian legislation, the electoral process of snap elections begins on the next day after the President’s decree on early termination of the mandate of Verkhovna Rada and appointment of the new elections is published. Therefore, the electoral process starts on May 24, without Central Commission making any decisions.
