The Constitutional Court of Ukraine held oral arguments (broadcast live for the first time on the "First" national television station) regarding the case challenging the constitutionality of Law No. 2222-IV. The Law amended the Constitution and served as a springboard for the 2004 political reform which transferred certain Presidential powers to Verkhovna Rada, the Parliament, and to the Cabinet of Ministers, creating a parliamentary-presidential form of government. Challengers allege that Law No. 2222-IV is unconstitutional because the Constitutional Court did not review and approve the Law prior to its adoption, as required by the Constitution. The Court is expected to issue a decision within a week.
