The Constitutional Court of Ukraine(CCU)on September 29 will consider constitutionality of the farmland market law, upon the appeal of a group of 48 people's deputies disputing new legislation.

"At 10:00 on September 29, the Grand Chamber of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine at the open part of the plenary session in the form of oral proceedings will hear the case on the constitutional submission of 48 lawmakers of Ukraine regarding the constitutionality of the Law of Ukraine 'On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine concerning farmland turnover' of March 31, 2020, No. 552-IX, certain provisions of the Land Code of Ukraine as amended by this law, and 53 MPs of Ukraine regarding the constitutionality of the Law of Ukraine 'On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine concerning farmland turnover' of March 31, 2020, No. 552-IX," the CCU's Department of Communications of and Legal Monitoring reported on the court's website.

The authors of the motions argue that farmland, as an object of property rights of the Ukrainian people, is the main national wealth under the special protection of the state, which primarily concerns agricultural land.

Authors claim the Parliament has passed the bill in violation of the constitutional procedure, while its provisions allegedly contradict Constitutional norms.
