The Verkhovna Rada is developing a draft law on reforming the Constitutional Court in terms of selecting judges on a competitive basis.
Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefanchuk announced this, Ukrinform reports with reference to Telegram channel VR.
“It is absolutely logical that the first task set for Ukraine is the issue of reforming the Constitutional Court in terms of selecting judges on a competitive basis. A separate bill is being drafted. As far as I know, it should be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada in the coming days, will be registered, and I really hope that at one of the next meetings we will be able to vote on it already in the first reading,” the speaker said.
According to him, this is in fulfillment of the seven requirements of the European Commission for the acquisition of Ukraine’s membership in the EU.
As Ukrinform reported, Deputy Head of the Office of the President Igor Zhovkva said that Ukraine had carried out a significant part of the work to implement the recommendations of the European Commission regarding granting the status of a candidate country for EU membership and expects to implement all seven recommendations by the end of the year.
