The date for the presidential elections has been set for later this year on 25th October. Today PoR have started the 'second phase' of troublemaking by blocking the work of parliament...
PM Tymoshenko has accused PoR and the president of collusion to force early parliamentary elections onto the country yet again.
"I suspect that a limited company has been formed based on the principle: we do the blocking and you announce early elections by ukaz. It's a shame - this co-operation between Yanukovych and the president. They want to conduct early elections, and this means the country will be left dangling for 8 months, wrecking any remaining stability," said the PM.
She also declared the blocking of parliament by members of PoR is hindering the acceptance of anti-crisis laws and is directed at destabilizing the work of parliament and the political situation in general, adding that her team is categorically against any early parliamentary elections. "These irresponsible attempts have been made before, and ended with nothing. I promise them this - I will not permit them to ruin and wreck the country," she emphasized.
Party of Regions deny collusion and swear that they are blocking the VR without any deals with the presidential secretariat.
Oleksandr Tretyakov, a former close aide of president Yushchenko and a NUNS elder, commented: "Today we have became the witnesses of start of a scenario to completely discredit the President undertaken by the PoR together with technical personnel from the secretariat that are known to the entire country. They are specially provoking Viktor Yushchenko to issue and edict to break up parliament in order to provide additional arguments in favor of the beginning of impeachment procedures," adding, "It is possible to draw the conclusion that Party of Regions is intentionally destabilizing the country, [in order to] provoke serious economic and social shocks in society."
Maybe its time for a few stern 'phone calls from the 'grown-ups' at the IMF and European Commission..
