President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko claims that the Minister, who “does not obey the united decision of the faction”, must be recalled from government.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, President’s Press Secretary Iryna Vannikova claimed this to a news conference today.

She noted that today, at a meeting with Our Ukraine – People’s Self-Defense faction members, President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko noted that OU-PSD and its representatives in the Cabinet of Ministers must show a consolidated work, and officials must fulfill the united position of the faction.

“I would like the faction to accept this principle. Please, work out a mechanism for this principle could operate”, I.Vannikova cited the President as saying.

According to her, the President also proposed the faction to determine its position concerning the Ministers “who prefer to work in other way”.

“I propose: the Minister, who does not obey a united decision of the faction, must be recalled from the government. It is a common practice in the world. A Minister is not elected by himself. A Minister is proposed by a political force. If he does not support the ideas and decisions – you should look for another Minister”, I.Vannikova cited the President as saying.
