The Constitutional Court has declared the law on an all-Ukrainian referendum unconstitutional. 

The respective decision was passed on April 26, the court's press service reported.

"The Constitutional Court of Ukraine declared the law unconstitutional due to the violation of the procedure for its consideration and approval and in view of its content. On the basis of establishing the illegitimacy of the purpose of the law and non-compliance of its provisions with the requirements of the Constitution of Ukraine, the Constitutional Court came to the conclusion that the law completely contradicts the main law of the state," reads the report.

In particular, the Constitutional Court drew attention to violations of the constitutional procedure for the consideration and adoption of the law, which were of a systemic nature and significantly influenced the final outcome of the adoption of the law. The court stressed that the adoption of acts of the Verkhovna Rada at its plenary meetings should be carried out solely by means of personal voting by people's deputies.

"Taking into account the above legal position, the Constitutional Court holds that the systematic, gross violation of the constitutional procedure for the consideration and adoption of a normative act, as well as the significant impact of this violation on the final result of its adoption, is a reason to recognize this act as unconstitutional," the decision says.

The law on an all-Ukrainian referendum becomes invalid from the date of approval of this decision by the Constitutional Court.

The Verkhovna Rada adopted the law on an all-Ukrainian referendum on November 6, 2012.
