"The president invites us and obviously wants to talk about the amendments to the Constitution. There is a positive thing, we have reached a compromise with People's Front, and Samopomich has also agreed to vote for the judicial amendments to the Constitution," he said.

Earlier, Stepan Kubiv, presidential representative to the parliament and Poroshenko Bloc MP, told reporters the Verkhovna Rada would consider sending the bill to the Constitutional Court on Jan. 28.

In turn, Lutsenko expressed hope the Constitutional Court would not delay deciding on the issue, for, compared with the previous version of the bill, only one norm was amended to let the parliament vote for the document in the first reading at the current session, which ends on Feb. 2.
