Constitution Court considers Zelensky’s order to dissolve Ukrainian parliament

18:03, 11 June 2019

Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky joined the session of the Constitution Court. He was present at the hall of the Court for several minutes. Before he left he said he did not want to be charged with applying pressure on judges.

Meanwhile, the authority checks Zelensky's order to disband the Ukrainian Parliament, ruling whether it was in line with the country's basic law. 62 MPs turned to the Court, insisting that the order was unconstitutional, since the parliamentary coalition disappeared in May 2019, not in March 2016, as the president's team said. The court session began at 11 a.m. Tuesday. As of 3 p.m. it still was underway.
