Amendments passed

The big news today is that the amendments passed to modify the election laws and to create a parliamentary form of government. It looks like the change will take place at the outside in January of 2006. That gives Yuschenko about a year to try to reform things.

It looks like this satisfied everybody on Yuschenko's side except for Tymoshenko. I don't know what her objections are right now. Mine is that they might not have enough time. But who knows.

"..they might not have enough time."That is among my thoughts too, Scott. In addition, I simply don't like the parliamentarian system. It is the socialist-preferred system that can make like a democracy, but isn't really. The combined presidential-parliamentarian system in Ukraine has more democratic features now than it will have after these EU encouraged ‘reforms’ become effective.

I’ve said before – these ‘reforms’ have been kept all too secret, the public does not have them – nor have they been allowed to vote on them. Last – but certainly not least – how is it democratic to allow the very power brokers who will benefit from this the most to vote these advantages for themselves? It reeks of top-down screw-the-people.

In a perfect world, the people would know exactly what government plans for government advanges are - be given the exact text to be enacted, then asked to vote for or against.
