BYuT and Party of Regions factions vote together again

Verkhovna Rada Speaker Arseniy Yatseniuk did not allow members of parliament to adopt as a whole the draft law on establishing criminal responsibility for illegal dissolution of parliament.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, on Thursday lawmakers adopted in first reading draft law “On Introducing Amendments into Laws of Ukraine on Additional Measures for Guaranteeing Observance of Ukrainian Constitution”.

MPs of BYuT and Party of Regions factions insisted to immediately vote on the draft law in the second reading and as a whole.

Arseniy Yatseniuk recalled that the Verkhovna Rada has never adopted a draft law on the same day when it was adopted in the first reading.

When Arseniy Yatseniuk objected to considering the draft law in the second reading on the same day, lawmakers began to make a lot of noise. The Speaker said: “You can behave like normal people. Why are you noising around like in a zoo?”
