The Commission will develop proposals as to changes to be introduced into the Constitution, including changes to the part concerning decentralization. Representatives of political forces, public, and experts, are engaged in the process.

The key changes in the part on local self-governance reformation will concern redistribution of responsibilities between executive bodies and local self-government, creation of executive bodies by raion and oblast councils, change of status and responsibilities of local administrations, and reorganization of these administrations into prefecture-type bodies.

 According to Venetian Commission President, Gianni Buquicchio, it is important for constitutional changes concerning decentralization to enter into force before local elections. Voters must know, which responsibilities the authorities they elect are going to have.
