Hrytsenko hits Baloha below the belt
50 MPs were waiting for President for more than an hour
Today’s meeting of President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko with parliament members from the Our Ukraine – People’s Self Defence faction (without the People’s Self Defence group), which was scheduled at 10.30 am, has not started as yet.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, MP Anatoliy Hrytsenko said this in an interview with journalists.
Commenting on the today’s refusal of the People’s Self Defence MPs to participate in the meeting with the President, A. Hrytsenko said: “The issue is wider here. If the President and his team is not able to organize normally the agenda and their work, when more than 50 parliament members are sitting here and waiting for more than 50 minutes, and nobody explains anything, it, first of all, indicates an administrative impotence”. Secondly, A. Hrytsenko said that “it is merely a disrespect to members of parliament”. “I have a work to do – so I go to work”, added the MP and left the Presidential Secretariat.
MP Borys Tarasyuk also left the Presidential Secretariat. However, he abstained from comments.
