The head of the Verkhovna Rada, Ruslan Stefanchuk, explained how the parliament will consider European integration bills procedurally.
He wrote about this in Facebookaccording to Ukrinform.
Stefanchuk noted that last week the parliament adopted a corresponding resolution, according to which subcommittees will now be created in each Verkhovna Rada Committee, whose attention will be focused specifically on adapting national legislation to EU legislation.
“Representatives of the subcommittees will communicate directly with the committees of the European Parliament and committees of parliaments. Each bill that will be submitted to the session hall under the slogan of European integration will have an additional table. It is there that there will be information on which directives the initiated document corresponds to,” the speaker noted.
He stressed that the Cabinet of Ministers will be the subject of the legislative initiative.
Stefanchuk said that after the first verification, carried out jointly with the government, it is certain that there are 49 European integration bills in the Verkhovna Rada now.
“They will be adopted only if they comply with EU directives,” the speaker stressed.
As reported, on June 23, a decision was made to grant Ukraine the status of a candidate for membership in the European Union. In this regard, and in order to create proper conditions for the implementation of the provisions of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, the European Atomic Energy Community and their Member States, it is necessary to improve certain aspects of the legislative procedure in order to create optimal mechanisms for processing draft laws aimed at adapting legislation of Ukraine to the provisions of European Union law (EU acquis), fulfillment of Ukraine’s international legal obligations in the field of European integration.
