"Medvedchuk will not run for vice speaker, and our party will not nominate him since he has been both vice speaker and first vice speaker, and today he is focused on party work. He knows how and is focused on this," he told journalists before the Preparatory Deputy Group, an UNIAN correspondent reports.

According to Rabinovych, the opposition should be granted top posts in parliamentary committees on budget, rules of procedure, and freedom of speech.

Answering the question on which parliamentary committees in Ukraine should be given to the opposition, Rabinovych said: "This is all written down in all provisions, laws, and there is practice. In any country in the world, the opposition usually has a budget committee, a regulatory committee, and a freedom of speech committee. At least these ones to begin."
