Even if Baloha resigns – Turchynov

BYuT will not refuse its initiatives on introducing amendments into the Constitution even if Baloha resigns from post of the President’s Chief of Staff.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Top Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksander Turchynov claimed this to journalists in the Cabinet of Ministers today.

“These issues are not connected. I do not think that the topic of Baloha is so important that it may influence the model of Constitution. In my opinion, it is somehow biased assessment of the situation”, O.Turchynov said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 12, People’s Self-Defense leader, Interior Minister Yuri Lutsenko claimed that BYuT could stop its constitutional initiatives in exchange for resignation of Victor Baloha from post of the President’s Chief of Staff. “The easiest variant is to sack Baloha, the price of which, in my opinion, should be an agreement with BYuT on reducing their constitutional initiatives up to agreeing positions with OU-PSD”, Yuri Lutsenko said.

According to him, the government must be busy with not Constitution, but the meat price.

Yuri Lutsenko noted that, as of today, the country has dual power.
