Ukrainian gov’t passes bill on presidential impeachment
Ukraine’s parliament on Tuesday adopted a bill, setting out a special procedure for a presidential impeachment.
PRESIDENT'S ACTS WILL BE QUESTIONED
The bill, introduced by the country's President Volodymyr Zelensky, suggested that the impeachment process can be initiated by the majority of the lawmakers. Besides, an investigative commission must be established with the participation of the members of parliament and a special attorney and investigators.
The finding of the commission will be first examined by the parliament, and in case of finding the president guilty, the parliament will take opinions from the Constitutional Court about constitutional character of the investigation and from the Supreme Court for having a confirmation that president's actions constitute crime.
