Hrytsenko says he already turned down four proposals
MP not working over creating his own party?
MP Anatoliy Hrytsenko, head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee for National Security and Defense and ex-Defense Minister of Ukraine, claims he is not working over creating his own political party at present.
According to Hrytsenko’s press-service, he said this answering questions of journalists.
“I’m not working over creating any political party and I have deliberately turned down four proposals to head one of already existing parties”, he said.
At the same time, according to him, he has been working towards another direction: “to unite people from other parties, as well as non-party members, on principles of professionalism, efficiency, active civil position, common sense, without narrow-party or far-fetched political clichés”.
“Can you name at least three-four parties with a clear ideological platform out of those 153 [existing in Ukraine]? I can’t as well, and I don’t want to waste my time on that”, he stressed.
According to him, people should be united by work within frames of a single common aim. “As for me, this aim is: first – to increase living standards and quality, and second – to enhance security of people, families, houses, environment, business, state”, A.Hrytsenko claimed.
