Venice Commission 88th Plenary Session and Ukraine

October 17, 2011

The Venice Commission has apparently expressed its support for the legal changes placed before it by Ukraine over the weekend.

Of particular note amongst the Ukrainian issues before them, at least for most people, would be the reform of the judicial powers and the status of judges, closely followed by electoral reform law and latterly a matter of language.

For those particularly interested there are pdf downloads here relating to said laws, as you scan through the  Agenda of the 88th Plenary Session.

Of course you are interested, these three matters affect all the pillars of democracy – Rule of law, politics and human rights/civil society and the media.
