19:33, 4 February 2020

The Ukrainian parliament preliminarily approved the decision to reduce the number of MPs from 450 to 300. The lawmakers also offer to add to the Constitution the norm of proportional electoral system. This foresees that there will be no voting in single-constituency districts.

Now, the Constitution Court will be considering these changes. The respective bill has yet to score 300 votes in the Parliament in order to be passed.
