It is the only right way to work out a new Constitution, he said

At his quarterly press conference President Yushchenko expressed assurance that the only right way to work out a new edition of the Constitution would be through National Constitutional Council rather than through creating temporary commission in the Verkhovna Rada for that.

According to the President`s press-office, he however noted that preparing modifications to the Constitution without participation of the Parliament would also be wrong. “We must respect democratic parliamentary institute. On the other hand we may not ignore population and voters as it had been back in 2004. That is why corresponding referendum and dialogue with people should be held”, - he said.
