Zelensky promised to reformat Constitutional Court

The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with the Focus edition promised to reformat the work Of the Constitutional Court (CC) of the country in 2021.

According to him, in its current form, the body is not able to impartially perform its functions, since it has become a “public-private partnership enterprise.” He believes that the decisions of the judges are now influenced by various structures that have nothing to do with the state. “For many years they, these shareholders of the Constitutional Court, have been influenced by players from both business and politics,” the president added.

Zelensky stressed that during his presidency there was not a single appointment to the Constitutional Court. To solve the problem of the organ’s dependence, he also proposed to remove its current chairman, Alexander Tupitsky, from the post. The President explained that this person has already provoked several conflicts within the country and it is time for him to leave his post voluntarily. “The reboot of the court should begin with this. I do not even threaten,” the Ukrainian leader concluded.

On October 27, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine blocked the law on the electronic declaration of income of officials, and also deprived the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption of a number of key powers. President Zelensky did not recognize these decisions, in Ukraine began a constitutional crisis.
