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.
