Ukrinform
The Constitutional Court will determine at a meeting on June 4 the form of proceedings in the case concerning a presidential decree on the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada of the eighth convocation.

This is stated in the agenda published on the website of the court.

In particular, it notes that on June 4, at a sitting of the Grand Chamber of the Constitutional Court, judges will "consider the issue on determining the form of constitutional proceedings in the case on a constitutional motion filed by 62 people's deputies of Ukraine regarding the compliance with the Constitution of Ukraine (constitutionality) of a decree of the president of Ukraine 'On the early termination of powers of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the calling of snap elections'."

According to Ukrainian MP Maksym Burbak, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine registered the proceedings at the request of a group of people's deputies who demand that President Volodymyr Zelensky's decree on the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada be recognized as illegal.

Burbak published a letter by Judge Rapporteur Viktor Kryvenko, which reports on the opening of constitutional proceedings.

President Volodymyr Zelensky announced the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada in his inaugural speech on May 20. On May 21, he signed a decree on the early termination of parliamentary powers and the calling of snap elections on July 21.

The decree came into force on May 23 after its publication in the government's Uriadovy Kurier newspaper.

On May 24, People's Front MPs Andriy Teteruk and Ihor Alekseyev submitted a motion to the Constitutional Court regarding the unconstitutionality of the presidential decree on the early termination of the powers of the Verkhovna Rada. They asked the court to consider the motion within a month.
