You're reading: Klitschko: UDAR won’t join work of Constitutional Assembly
on social media

According to the party’s press service, at a meeting with representatives of the Venice Commission Klitschko said that the assembly was created to amend the constitution in order to satisfy exclusively the interests of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and strengthen his power. In connection with this, UDAR will not participate in this process.

The press service also said that the Venice Commission was interested most of all in the opposition’s opinion on the law on referendums and a possibility to amend the constitution via calling a referendum. UDAR thinks that attempts to amend the country’s main law via a referendum are the authorities’ attempts to change all laws and even the constitution aimed at satisfaction of their own interests, which might result into establishment of authoritarianism in the country.

“The parliament has to amend the constitution, as this is envisaged by the constitution,” Klitschko said.
