The Constitutional Court recognized that the decree of President Volodymyr Zelensky on the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada does not contradict the law. This was reported in the press service of the Constitutional Court.

Thus, the judges noted that this parliamentary assembly did not resume in the regulation “legal regulation of the termination of the activities of the coalition of parliamentary factions”, which is associated with the beginning of the one-month term for the formation of a new coalition and the right of the president to dissolve the Parliament if the coalition was not created.

Thus, as noted by the Constitutional Court, a “constitutional conflict” arose between the President and the Parliament on the early termination of the powers of the parliament, which “does not have a legal solution”, since the Constitution does not determine the procedure for terminating the coalition’s activities.

“At the same time, the people are the bearer of sovereignty and the only source of power in Ukraine; the people exercise power directly and through the bodies of state power and bodies of local self-government (Part 2, Article 5 of the Constitution of Ukraine). This fundamental provision is specified in the provision of Article 69 of the Constitution of Ukraine that the people’s will is expressed through elections. The Constitutional Court of Ukraine stated that the resolution of the constitutional conflict by the people through holding extraordinary elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine meets the requirements of Part 2, Article 5 of the Constitution of Ukraine,” explained the court.

The decision of the Constitutional Court is final and can not be appealed.
