Bushko read in the law that they can have meetings in other rooms of the Verkhovna Rada
Deputy of Ukraine, member of the parliamentary faction of the Party of Regions Ivan Bushko commented on yesterday's events in the Parliament and the meeting of the parliamentary majority in the house of parliamentary committees:
This was a necessary step. The absurd and already more than outrageous behavior of the opposition pushed us to take this step. We all assumed certain obligations to our voters. The opposition may ignore these obligations and just play in the cheap populist games, but we did not and do not agree with that. We need to work and we will. Regardless of the location.
Moreover, the law gives us the right to do so. The relevant provision is set in the Law of Ukraine "On the Regulations of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine." In the second article of this document it is clearly stated that by the decision of the Verkhovna Rada adopted by most of the deputies, the meetings may be held not only in the assembly hall, but also in other rooms of the Verkhovna Rada. We took advantage of this right and managed, in my view, to work quite fruitfully. We adopted laws on pension increases, budget financing of medical emergency, the staffing of forensics and many other important decisions.
And if the opposition do not stop that mess they started at the parliament, and continue to violate the laws of Ukraine by blocking the rostrum, the parliamentary majority will continue to work without them.
