The delegation of the Ukrainian President in Crimea supported the changes in the order of appointing the Head of Crimea Ministerial Council to provide a possibility of its operation in the condition of peninsula’s occupation. Ìzet Gdanov, First Deputy of President’s Permanent Representative in Crimea, said it, as Ukrainian News report.
“According to the Constitution, the Autonomous Republic of Crimea has a special status, a Prime Minister and a Ministerial Council. Crimean Supreme Council appoints the Prime Minister as agreed with the President. For now, we don’t have an executive body de facto due to the annexation and we need it to develop the sector programs on de-occupation and reintegration of Crimea and so that after the de-occupation we could without protraction obligate the security of our citizens and control over the territory. How can we do that if we cannot appoint a Prime Minister and a Ministerial Minister right away, as our so-called Supreme Council is illegal?” he said.
According to Gdanov, now the representation is developing a scheme of reordering the Prime Minister of the Ministerial Council deleting the Crimean Supreme Council from the process.
“We are considering the questions on an appointment scheme to the executive authorities of Crimea… We have to develop a separate system of appointment, which would, for instance, allow the President of Ukraine to appoint the Prime Minister, who forms the Ministerial Council so that after the de-occupation we could provide a governmental control over the territory of Crimea,” he said.
The Deputy of the Permanent Representative insists that such changes are necessary and now the delegation is waiting for the draft project from the constitutional commission and further decision of Petro Poroshenko.
It should be mentioned that according to the Crimean Constitution, the Crimean Supreme Council implements representative, rule-making functions and credentials within its competence.
Crimea’s Ministerial Council is the Republic’s executive body. Crimea’s Supreme Council appoints and firs the Head of the Ministerial Council of the peninsula agreed with the Ukrainian President.
Moreover, the document says that the term of office of Crimean Supreme Court is five years. The termination of powers is a consequence of the termination of powers of its deputies.
Before the peninsula was occupied, Anatoly Mohilev was the Minister of the Ministerial Council in Crimea (November 8, 2011 – February 27, 2014).
