President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is calling on Verkhovna Rada Chairperson Andriy Parubiy to initiate the parliament's withdrawal of MPs' bill on creation of the anticorruption court so that the President could register a new bill.

This is said in the President's letter to the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"I suggest taking measures foreseen by the rules for withdrawal of bill No. 6011 on anticorruption courts," reads the letter.

President Poroshenko says the Council of Europe's European Commission for Democracy through Law (the Venice Commission) has given critical assessment of bill No. 6011 and bill No. 6529 on anticorruption courts. However, the President cannot register a new bill as bill No. 6011 remains on the agenda of the parliament.

The President also calls on the Rada speaker to instruct the head of the parliamentary committee to create a workgroup for elaboration of a new bill on the base of the recommendations of the Venice Commission.

The President says the workgroup should include representatives of all or most of factions and groups. The President says he will take into consideration proposals of the group in his new bill on anticorruption courts.

The President will register the new bill on anticorruption courts as urgent.

The President says the bill must be adopted by the end of 2017.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Rada Speaker Parubiy states that bill No. 6011 on establishment of the Anticorruption Court should be recalled by the Ukrainian Parliament.
