Rada may approve Anti-Corruption court law in June – Herasymov
The Verkhovna Rada may pass a bill on the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court as a whole until the end of May, but it is possible that this will happen in June due to the large volume of the document, head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction Artur Herasymov has said.
"We will do everything, and our faction will do its best to have this law passed before the end of the May plenary weeks. But it is likely that if we do not have time, we will finish it right away in early June, during the next plenary week," he said on Channel 5 on Thursday evening.
Speaking about the results of the meeting of representatives of the parliamentary factions held on the eve of the meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, Herasymov noted that everyone had supported the position on the need to start consideration of the bill at the second reading as soon as possible.
He also added that next week they expect the decision of the relevant committee on legal policy and justice regarding the draft law.
Meanwhile, the head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction stressed that it might be necessary to have more than one meeting of the committee to complete the work on the document due to its large volume.
