Today [Tuesday] president Yushchenko conducted a meeting with the NUNS VR fraction.
According to an official report on the president's website: "At the start of the meeting the head of state again gave his assessment of events that took place in the VR on 2nd September, and called them a national betrayal...The president emphasized that "the scenario, which was delivered from abroad, had as its aim to turn the national course through 180 degrees."
He declared that the democratic coalition in its previous form has shown itself to be, in a current political situation, superfluous, "because the plan which they dreamed up against Ukraine, was much more important than negotiations on the daily parliamentary agenda, the Georgia question, the Black Sea fleet."
'Korrespondent' speculates that matters could now develop in three possible ways.
The orange coalition could be re-established again, or BYuT could join forces with PoR - but neither of these is likely.
Yushchenko could dissolve parliament in the near future. A snap December election would primarily be a two-horse race with a Yushchenko-aligned bloc attempting to overcome the 3% threshold.
Or a majority coalition fails to be formed, but Yushchenko does not dismiss parliament. Dissolution of parliament is an alternative for him, but he is not duty-bound to do this. PM Tymoshenko remains in power.
LEvko thinks that Yushchenko has now all but nailed his colours to the mast. If he fails to dissolve parliament and call for fresh elections he will be seen as a weak-willed choker. If he does 'go for it' he faces major challenges on the legality of such a move, and possibly a major consitutional crisis.
With the current economic crisis swirling around the globe a functioning parliament is vital for any necessary economic decisions to be debated and ruled upon. The president and his secretariat, which employs well over a thousand staff have no game plan - apart from trotting out vague innuendo..
