The constitutional court took up parliamentary immunity

On the agenda at the constitutional court of Ukraine is considering two similar bills, which differ only in the date of entry into force.

The constitutional court of Ukraine on Wednesday, April 11, began to consider two bills on the abolition of parliamentary immunity. This is stated in the agenda of the meetings of the court.

One bill belongs to Parliament – it was filed by 158 MPs. And the second initiative comes from the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

Both bills are essentially the same, differing only in the date of entry into force of any law. Deputy option provides for the introduction of the bill into force the day after publication. At that time, as head of state believes that parliamentary immunity should be abolished in 2020.

The bill belonging to the deputies of the constitutional court will consider on April 11 and the hearing of the presidential initiative is scheduled for Thursday, April 12.

For the adoption of amendments to the Constitution first, the bill is forwarded to the COP for an opinion. After receiving a draft law being considered by Parliament and pre-approved by at least 226 votes. And final adoption may occur no earlier than at the next regular session of the Parliament and must be made a minimum of 300 votes.

In 2015, KSU has taken a decision on the abolition of parliamentary immunity. The court admitted that the bill meets the Constitution, but in 2017, the deputies removed the document from consideration.

We will remind, in October 2017, Poroshenko proposed changes in the immunity of deputies.

As reported, in March, KSU said that they are ready to take up parliamentary immunity.
