The FINANCIAL — The Cabinet of Ministers has suggested that the Verkhovna Rada endorse new wording of the law on government after Constitutional Court's ruling on unconstitutionality of amendments into the Constitution of 2004, Justice Minister Oleksandr Lavrynovych told a briefing.
He also said that the Cabinet of Ministers simultaneously suggests that the Verkhovna Rada introduce certain amendments into thirty two laws that would envision redistribution of authorities between the President, Cabinet of Ministers and the Verkhovna Rada.
Lavrynovych said that new wording of the law on the Cabinet of Ministers will be sent to the Verkhovna Rada on October 4.
He said that currently, in compliance with the Constitution that took effect after the Constitutional Court's ruling, a prime minister is appointed by the president after agreement of the Verkhovna Rada.
The ministers and heads of all central power bodies are appointed by the president in accordance with recommendation of prime minister.
At the same time, to dismiss ministers and heads of central power bodies, the recommendation of a prime minister is not required.
Lavrynovych also said that those heads of central power bodies, who were appointed in accordance with authorities of the government, envisioned by the Constitution that was in force from 2006 to October 1, 2010, are legitimate, should not be re-elected.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, on October 1, the Constitutional Court called as unconstitutional the law No.2222-IV "On introduction of amendments" of December 8, 2004.
At the same time, the Constitutional Court urged state authorities to immediately bring the terms of the legislation in a line with the wording of Constitution of 1996.
