Ukraine's Constitutional Court to continue closed-door part of hearings on Rada dissolution move
The Constitutional Court of Ukraine on June 18 plans to continue hearings in the case to determine constitutionality of the presidential decree on the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament.
That is according to the June 18-20 draft agenda of the court sessions published on the Constitutional Court's website.
In particular, the relevant plenary session of the Chamber of the Constitutional Court is to begin at 10:00 Kyiv time on June 18. It is planned to consider a motion tabled by 62 Ukrainian lawmakers on the constitutionality of a presidential decree on the early termination of the powers of the Verkhovna Rada (at the closed-door part of the plenary hearings).
As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 21, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree on early termination of powers of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the appointment of early elections for July 21.
On May 24, MPs from the Popular Front faction filed a motion with the Constitutional Court, requesting that the judges declare the decree on Parliament dissolution unconstitutional.
On June 11, the Grand Chamber of the Constitutional Court began hearings in the case on the constitutionality of the presidential decree.
