Vojvodina Assembly to consider change of Constitution
NOVI SAD - Branislav Bogaroski, deputy president of the League of Social Democrats of Vojvodina, stated on Monday that the draft declaration on the change of Constitution does not offer ready-made solutions, but rather states the facts the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia has to change and that the current Constitution lacks functionality.
Bogaroski said at a press conference that the draft declaration on the need to initiate a procedure for the change of the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia or adoption of a new Constitution of the Republic of Serbia backed by the Democratic Party (DS), the League of Social Democrats of Vojvodina (LSV) and the New Democratic Party (NDS) will be tabled in the Vojvodina Assembly on Tuesday.
The majority in the Vojvodina Assembly is composed of DS, LSV and the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians, which constitute opposition in the national parliament.
He said that the Constitution has showed its lack of functionality causing disagreements regarding the adoption of the Vojvodina budget, adding that out of its last eight budgets, seven were not in line with the Constitution.
Bogaroski underlined that there is no party in the Serbian parliament which is eurosceptic and does not agree that the change of the Constitution is necessary.
"Such a situation should be taken advantage of," Bogaroski said, adding that the draft declaration is calling for the opinion of the Vojvodina Assembly, which has to be taken into consideration in adopting the new constitution.
He said that the opinion of the Vojvodina Assembly has to be also heard on the position of the province in Serbia.
