Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andry Parubiy stated that he cannot sign the law on temporary investigation commissions with norms of impeachment instead of the president as 112 Ukraine reported.
“Colleagues, the questions appeared on the signing of the law on the temporary investigation commissions. We have a really strange situation, when…the newly elected president promised that he will submit the law on impeachment but he does not sign the law on temporary investigation commissions adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. I figured the situation out in details along with the lawyers, whether the Head of the Verkhovna Rada may sign, unfortunately, as for this stage, the head cannot sign it,” Parubiy said.
According to him, the Constitution states that the speaker of the parliament signs the law adopted by the Rada in case when the veto of the president is hurdle.
“Now, the law on the temporary investigation commissions waits for the sign of the president. I underline, he has no right to submit offers or veto it; he may only sign it; it is our common task to force him to sign it,” the parliament’s speaker emphasized.
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 the signing.
