Advisor of Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, member of the Supreme Rada from Poroshenko’s Bloc Nikolay Tomenko has spoken for dissolving the parliament and early elections. He made the statement at the Rada today.
“The Supreme Rada is not working; there was no quorum on Thursday to open the plenary session. The same situation is taking place today,” the MP noted. According to him, “there are two options: we either work or have early elections this autumn together with the local campaign.”
Tomenko stressed there are MPs who have not been seen at the Rada for a year. “Let those people continue doing business, and professional politicians can take their mandates,” he said. He believes that the number of mandates should be cut from the current 450 to 300.
Earlier, the Opposition Bloc called for early elections. So did Yulia Timoshenko’s Batkivshchyna and Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party.
