Ukraine's Rada votes down resolutions blocking bill that changes parliamentary rules
The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, has voted down all draft resolutions blocking a bill that changes the parliamentary rules regarding consideration of draft laws submitted with a large number of amendments.
All four draft resolutions (No. 1043-P, No. 1043-P1, No. 1043-P2, No. 1043-P3) were rejected, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
Draft resolution No. 1043-P1 scored the highest number of votes – only 61.
Now the bill can be signed by the parliament's speaker and submitted to the president for signature.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Verkhovna Rada passed a bill amending the parliamentary rules regarding counteracting the abuse of lawmakers' rights in the legislative procedure (No. 1043), which introduces a special procedure for considering bills that have a large number of amendments.
Later, co-chair of the Za Maibutnie (For the Future) parliamentary faction Taras Batenko and MP from this faction Iryna Konstankevych tabled a draft resolution in parliament to cancel the adoption of the bill (No. 1043-P).
In addition, another three draft resolutions No. 1043-P1, No. 1043-P2, and No. 1043-P3 with a similar request were registered by MP from the Servant of the People faction Oleksandr Dubinsky, independent MP Anton Polyakov, and MP from the Servant of the People faction Olha Vasylevska-Smahliuk.
