Will they do it?

I have been busy, busy, busy with some deadlines that I am up against. But LEvko, as always, has kept everyone updated on the latest information about forming the government--or not forming it. Everyone is waiting to see what will happen. But with the indications we have right now, it doesn't look so good.

Our Ukraine says it is now free to find another coalition partner. The only other parties out there are the communists with their just over 3% and Party of the Regions. So which one do you think they mean?

If they don't form a government, Yuschenko will have to dissolve Parliament and that means new elections. If that happens, Our Ukraine will be sunk. Three things can happen at this point if they re-vote and all of them are bad. People will either stay home because they're fed up with it all, which favors the parties with true believers, BYuT and PR; or they will show up and vote for some other party because their fed up with it all; or they will show up and punish Our Ukraine-- because they are fed up with it all. The point is that people are fed up with it all. And they are mostly fed up with Our Ukraine. So they had better avoid a new vote.

Why won't there be a fourth option, a groundswell of support for Our Ukraine if there's a vote? Because people are fed up with it all.

Is that the case? Is Yushenko *forced* to dissolve Parliament if no coalition is reached? I was starting to suspect that he think he can just drag things along endlessly in useless negotiations.
