Tymoshenko’s team does not believe the coalition will be restored

Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc has decided to get prepared for early parliamentary elections, Valery Pysarenko, member of parliament from the Tymoshenko Bloc, reported on Tuesday, commenting on the results of the meeting of the faction of the Bloc, held on Monday night, according to Itar-Tass.

Tymoshenko’s team believes a possibility of the restoration of the “orange” coalition, with Vladimir Lytvyn Bloc being invited to join it, is very small. A possibility of forming a coalition with the Party of Regions, led by Viktor Yanukovych, was not discussed by the Tymoshenko Bloc. According to Pysarenko, “most probably, the ruling coalition (the Tymoshenko Bloc and the pro-presidential Our Ukraine-Popular Self-Defence Bloc) will cease to exist today.”

After the disintegration of the coalition the Supreme Rada will have 30 days for the formation of a new parliamentary majority. If it fails to do that, the Ukrainian president will announce the holding of early elections.
