Ukraine: Yushchenko Urges Parliament to Approve Constitutional Court Judges

LEvko of Foreign Notes writes about president Yushchenko's determination to have the Constitutional Court judges approved by the parliament at last: “One of the reasons for the [parliament's] foot-dragging was that it did not want the Constitutional court to assess the validity or otherwise of Law № 2222-VI on amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine […]. The law, which came into effect 1st January 2006, reduced the powers of incoming President Yushchenko, compared to those of his predecessor, Kuchma.”
