Ukraine's Constitutional Court has begun a fourth day of hearings on the presidential decree to dissolve parliament
Ukraine's Constitutional Court has begun a fourth day of hearings on the presidential decree to dissolve parliament and call early elections amid ongoing protests near the court building. All 18 judges are attending the court session as several thousand supporters of the pro-presidential opposition forces and the ruling coalition in the Supreme Rada, led by the prime minister, continue to picket the building, which has been cordoned off by police. The court is expected to issue a final ruling by April 27. The Cabinet press service said the government would gather for an emergency session to hear reports from security agencies about the situation in the country, which has been rocked by political turmoil since 11 opposition members defected to the ruling coalition, prompting President Viktor Yushchenko to order the parliament's dissolution April 2. The two protagonists in the standoff, President Yushchenko and Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, are expected to meet later in the day to discuss the possibility of early parliamentary elections, tentatively set for May 27, Oleksandr Tretyakov of the pro-presidential Our Ukraine bloc told Ukrainian television. "I hope Viktor Yanukovych and Viktor Yushchenko will reach a compromise and agree on early elections," Tretyakov said, adding that this would require legal amendments.
