KIEV, August 12 (RIA Novosti) - The Ukrainian parliament will adopt a law establishing the jurisdiction of local governments, Ukraine's new prime minister said Saturday.

"In September, local authorities should receive sufficient powers to perform their functions effectively," Viktor Yanukovych said. "I believe new legislation will be passed in September-October and we will start working within the bounds of a new Constitution."

The bill was drafted and submitted to the Supreme Rada by the pro-Russia Party of Regions, led by Yanukovych.
