There are no constitutional grounds for Rada dissolution – Korniyenko
There are no constitutional grounds for the dissolution of parliament, leader of the Servant of the People party, first deputy head of the eponymous faction Oleksandr Korniyenko said.
"Today there are no constitutional grounds for dissolution. And we're constantly talking about this. I do not think that the president wanted to terminate the powers of the Verkhovna Rada ahead of schedule," Korniyenko said in an exclusive interview with the Interfax-Ukraine agency, answering the question whether President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will dissolve the Verkhovna Rada if it does not support his bill "On Restoring Public Trust in Constitutional Judiciary."
The member of parliament believes that the president's statement about the possibility of dissolving the parliament speaks of his concern that, on the one hand, "the court makes decisions that are not very useful for the country," and on the other hand, "the deputies are not behaving quite clearly."
According to him, some of deputies "directly support these decisions of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, and some support them covertly."
"That is, it is rather a signal - let's think about the problem, start a discussion. And it has started," Korniyenko stressed.
