Yushchenko’s proposed Constitutional reform rejected

The Ukraine Parliament has overwelmingly rejected Victor Yushchenko’s proposed Constitutional Reforms

Yushchenko’s has proposed that Ukraine revert back to a soviet style presidential autocracy where the President would have absolute power of Ukraine’s parliament, the courts and the executive government. If implemented Ukraine would no longer be a democratic state. 

Ukraine’s Constitution can only be amended with the support of two-thirds majority (300 or more) of the parliament.

48 out of 450 members (11%) of Ukraine’s Parliament voted to support the president’s proposed reforms.
