BYuT's bold attempt to force a quick parliamentary vote of support in her government before President-elect Viktor Yanukovych's inauguration this Thursday puts NUNS in a nasty 'make-your-mind-up' position.
NUNS, in particular, are being denied a long drawn-out period which would enable them to obtain the best-possible deal from PoR in arranging a new coalition with their potential future partners in parliament.
If Tymoshenko's government survives a vote of no confidence before Yanukovych's inauguration on Thursday their leader would again be in a commanding position after recent defeat in the presidential elections and subsequent court battle.
Today's move to force the issue of credibility in the current government may turn out to be a master-stroke.
Will her enemies be man enough to 'pick up the gauntlet'?
