“According to the President, there is a danger that the Parliament of Ukraine may thus remove itself from the exercise of its constitutional powers to appoint members of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on the proposal of the Prime Minister of Ukraine, allowing, however, in the period when the position of the Minister is vacant, the conferral on the First Deputy Minister and Deputy Ministers of the exercise of only certain powers of the Minister. Failure of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to adopt the decision on the appointment of the Minister for a long time will inevitably lead to paralysis of the relevant central executive body for the formation and implementation of state policy in a particular area,” said Ruslan Stefanchuk.
In addition, as noted by the President's Representative in the Parliament of Ukraine, the submitted law contained a number of technical and legal shortcomings.
“The final and transitional provisions of the law propose to postpone the entry into force of the provisions that are missing in it. Only when laws are based on a system of checks and balances of all branches of government, they can be supported in society. This is called the legislative balance, and such a position exists throughout the civilized world,” said Ruslan Stefanchuk.
