Mainly the Portnov/Lavrynovych draft focuses on one major aspect, namely the creation of a new system for the redistribution of the seats in the Verkhovna Rada between the parties elected with a special electoral rule assuring to the winning party the majority of the seats in the Parliament. In this context it could be useful to remind that according to the Constitution the Verkhovna Rada is composed of 450 deputies (Article 76 of the constitution: “The constitutional membership of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is 450 National Deputies of Ukraine”) and that for adopting a law the supporting vote of at least 226 deputies is necessary.
