PACE Committee asks Venice Commission to examine Ukraine’s new draft constitution

Strasbourg, 18.03.2008 - The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) Monitoring Committee, meeting in Paris today, decided to declassify an information note by the Co-rapporteurs on Ukraine, Hanne Severinsen (Denmark, ALDE)* and Renate Wohlwend (Liechtenstein, EPP/CD) on their recent fact-finding visit to Ukraine. The committee also decided to ask the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission for an opinion on Ukraine’s new draft constitution prepared by a working group of Ukrainian experts.

*Mrs Severinsen has since retired from PACE and has been replaced by Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger (Germany, ALDE).
