The Ukrainian Parliament just voted 229 to 8 to dismiss the governrment. There were 237 deputies there which was enough for a quorum so it was a legitimate vote.
That sounds to me like a vote of no confidence though I dont know if that has the effect here it would have in a country like Great Britain. But it is significant still. And to paraphrase an old cowboy movie, I don't know what it is (they will do). But whatever it is, itll be leegal.
The news is reporting that Kuchma and the Speaker, Lytvyn, must now form a government, so it does sound like a no confidence vote.
The government has fallen then, that is if the law is followed. But we are not really in territory that is defined by law. It is the masses on the street that are driving this thing and not the law or the constitution. I do think though that Yuschenko wants the stamp of legitimacy on his government so the law is not a non-issue for him. But I am convinced he will take what he gets.
