Ukraine's govt and opposition acknowledge flaws of 2004 constitutional reform
KYIV. Jan 28 (Interfax) - Opposition leaders admitted at a meeting with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych on Monday that the constitutional reform of 2004 was not flawless, Justice Minister Olena Lukash said.
"The sides acknowledged faults in the norms of Law No. 2222 [On Amendments to the Constitution, dated December 8, 2004], as well as the absence of any personal versions of the constitution's text," Lukash was quoted as saying by the president's press service.
"The sides discussed issues concerning their joint contribution to constitutional reform and mandatory cooperation in this matter with European institutions," she said.
Procedures for holding referendums were addressed at the meeting as well, the minister said.
Law No. 2222, which paves the way for Ukraine's transition to a parliamentary-presidential system, was recognized as unconstitutional by the country's Constitutional Court on September 30, 2010, the first year of Viktor Yanukovych's presidency.
However, the restoration of Ukraine as a parliamentary-presidential republic is reckoned to be a key factor in the search for a solution to the continuing crisis in the country.
