The change of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine will not influence the inauguration of President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky. The press service of the court reports this.
“Expressing deep concern concerning spreading of information on possible disruption of the inauguration of the president of Ukraine and manipulation with it, Judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine responsibly state that no obstacles from the Constitutional party will appear during bringing the newly elected president of Ukraine to oath in accordance with article 104 of the Constitution of Ukraine,” the report said.
According to part 2 of article 104 of the Constitution of Ukraine, the Head of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine brings the president of Ukraine to an oath.
Shaptala will replace her predecessor Stanislav Shevchuk; he was recently dismissed from the office, as the judges expressed the no-confidence vote.
Meanwhile, the date of Volodymyr Zelensky's inauguration is still unknown, as the Parliament has not yet approved it; according to various bills offered for the Parliament's consideration, it could be May 19, May 20 or June 3.
Ex-head of the authority Stanislav Shevchuk claimed he would appeal against this decision and the Court's actions, which he described as 'constitutional coup.'
