Verkhovna Rada Chairman Andriy Parubiy has offered to consider on February 7 amendments to the Constitution regarding Ukraine's course for the acquisition of full membership in the European Union and NATO.
"I propose to consider on Thursday one of the key bills – on amending the Constitution on the strategic course of the state to acquire full membership of Ukraine in the EU and NATO. I'd like to stress: this will be the final, third vote, which requires 300 votes to pass," he said during the Conciliation Council, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
He appealed to all factions to mobilize their efforts as much as possible on that day.
"Another issue, which we did not completely address last time, is the draft law on amending Article 133 of the Constitution of Ukraine regarding the renaming of Dnipropetrovsk region," he said, reiterating the fact that there had been two bills calling for renaming the region.
He noted the parliament would consider both of these bills, hold a rating vote to determine the right option, which will be then forwarded to the Constitutional Court.
According to Parubiy, a block of issues on informatization will also be considered on Thursday.
On Tuesday, the Rada will consider a set of bills on national security and defense, fuel and energy, as well as education.
On Wednesday, the parliament will consider ratification of international agreements, as well as a bill to improve the efficiency of proceedings in cases of violation of the law on the protection of economic competition.
