Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky offers to provide people with the right of the legislative initiative and enshrine the proper regulation in the Constitution. The proper bill registered in the Verkhovna Rada as #1015.

It is offered to reconsider Article 93 of the Constitution, which states that the right of the legislative initiative in the Verkhovna Rada is provided only to the president, the Cabinet of Ministers and MPs. It is offered to add people on the list. This right should be implemented “in cases and order provided by the Constitution and laws of Ukraine”.

Moreover, it is offered to provide the fact that “the law is adopted in accordance with the demands of the legislative procedure established by the Constitution of Ukraine and laws of Ukraine”.

On August 29, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky says he would disband the newly shaped Parliament in a year - in case it fails to live up to the expectations of fellow Ukrainians.
