Legal Committee recommended Verkhovna Rada adopt a law on banning political parties as a whole

The Legal Policy Committee adopted a decision at its meeting recommend The Verkhovna Rada to adopt as a whole the draft Law of Ukraine on amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine on the prohibition of political parties with two new amendments.

Solano the bill, Art. 60 of the Regulations of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is proposed to be supplemented with a new part 6 of the following content:

“If the President of Ukraine approves the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine to stop the activities of a political party that has formed a parliamentary faction in the Verkhovna Rada, the activity of such a parliamentary faction stops from the moment it is announced by the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada. The suspension of the activities of a parliamentary faction entails the suspension of the rights of this deputy faction, which are provided for by these Regulations and the relevant resolutions of the Verkhovna Rada”.

It is proposed to supplement the final provisions of the bill with a paragraph of such a city:

“The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, within a month from the date of entry into force of this Law, to submit for consideration by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine a draft law on the consequences of a court decision to ban a political party for the status of deputies of local councils”.

The bill also proposes to transfer the property of banned parties to state ownership in the event that the court bans the activities of the party.

The bill provides for a simplification of the procedure for judicial review: notification will be made by announcement, and failure to appear in court will not become an obstacle to the consideration of the case.

In addition, the judicial procedure will change: in the conditions of martial law, cases on the ban of a political party as a court of first instance are under the jurisdiction of the administrative court of appeal in the appellate district, which includes the city of Lviv, instead of the Kyiv District Administrative Court. And the court of appeal in the case of banning the party will be the Supreme Court, composed of a panel of the Cassation Administrative Court of at least five judges. The judgment of the Supreme Court in such cases will become final and will not be subject to cassation appeal.

In addition, the administrative case on the ban on the party will be decided by the court of first instance within a month after the opening of the proceedings on the case, and the court of appeal will consider the case within a month after the opening of the appeal proceedings.

The bill was adopted as a basis and will soon be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada.

Recall that as part of the suspension of the activities of parties in the country, the main legal conflict was what to do with the Opposition Platform for Life as a parliamentary party for which voters voted. However, in the end, on April 14, by the decision of the National Security and Defense Council, the activities of the OPPL faction in the Verkhovna Rada were suspended.

Previously, we wrote that in the Rada propose to ban the activities of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine, and about suspension of the activities of a number of Ukrainian parties of the National Security and Defense Council.
