The possibility of the early dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada by the new President will be present until May 27.
The newly elected President of Ukraine will have legal grounds to declare early elections to the Verkhovna Rada by May 27, stated the Deputy Chairman of the parliamentary faction of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc Sergei Berezenko.
“I understand that such an event is possible, and the legal support of such a position for holding early elections today is estimated at 50 to 50. If you asked me, there are lawyers who could justify the possibility of holding early elections – yes, there are,” he said in an interview with the Ukrainska Pravda (Ukrainian Truth), published on Monday, April 15.
Berezenko explained that after May 27 it will be impossible to dissolve Verkhovna Rada and announce early parliamentary elections according to Article 90 of the Constitution of Ukraine.
“They end, according to our legal analysis, on May 27,” said the MP.
He concluded that until May 27 the newly elected president will have the legal right to announce early parliamentary elections.
“How events will develop depends, at least, on the newly elected president, on the Verkhovna Rada, and on many other factors,” said Sergey Berezenko.
