Ukrainian lawmakers demand Constitutional Court ruling on legitimacy of judges' dismissal
font size    

Ukraine's lawmakers have asked the Constitutional Court to rule on the legitimacy of President Viktor Yushchenko's dismissal of three judges of the Constitutional Court, the information office of the court said on Tuesday.

The court has received three petitions from lawmakers asking for a ruling on the legitimacy of the president's removal of Judge Valeriy Pshenichny, Syuzanna Stanyk and Volodymyr Ivashchenko, the office said.

Yushchenko signed two decrees in April to dissolve the parliament and call for early parliamentary elections. Demanded by lawmakers, the constitutional Court began discussions on the legality of the decrees on April 17.

Between April 30 and May 10, Yushchenko signed decrees to sack three constitutional Court judges, as the court started legal proceedings on the legitimacy of the president's decrees.

The Constitutional Court, established in October 1996, is an 18-member board, which decides on the legality of presidential orders and monitors government decision-making bodies.
