The Verkhovna Rada may pass bills necessary to restore the work of e-declaration as early as this week. This was reported by speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Dmytro Razumkov at a meeting of the conciliation council of the parliament today, - correspondent of OstroV reports.

"An internal conference with representatives of all parliamentary factions and groups was held today. There are several bills already under consideration by the parliament. A bill to restore the effect of e-declaration and Article 366 of the Criminal Procedure Code will be registered today by the end of the day. 2 months will be given to study and make the relevant decision on the issues that were raised by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine in its decision", - he reported.

According to him, all these decisions should be made this plenary week.

"The Verkhovna Rada should demonstrate a consolidated position on these issues", - Dmytro Razumkov noted.

As previously reported, the Constitutional Court ruled on the case on proposal of 47 people's deputies of Ukraine on October 27, having canceled Article 366-1 of the Criminal Code, which provides for liability for doubtful declaring. The National Agency on Corruption Prevention closed access to the Unified State Register of Declarations on October 28 due to the decision of the Constitutional Court. The NABU stated that all cases on doubtful declaring would be closed due to the decision of the Constitutional Court, and officials convicted of abuses would avoid responsibility.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky introduced a draft law to the Verkhovna Rada, which proposes to terminate the powers of the entire composition of the Constitutional Court. In particular, the bill says that the decision of the Constitutional Court of October 27 is "null and void (it does not create legal consequences), such that was adopted by the judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine in conditions of a real conflict of interest". Zelensky proposes to terminate the powers of judges of the Constitutional Court from the date of entry into force of the law, and suggests the subjects of appointment of judges to immediately begin the procedure for the competitive selection of a new composition of the court.
