Government recalled its variant from VR

The faction of the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko will support president’s anti-crisis draft law.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this in parliament Wednesday introducing the governmental draft law on top-priority anti-crisis measures.

The Prime Minister emphasized that the Cabinet of Ministers withdrew its own anti-crisis draft law from parliament’s consideration.

“We strongly share the president’s draft law, we support it. Our faction will give all its 156 votes for this draft law, and we are ready to fulfill it”, Yulia Tymoshenko claimed.

The Prime Minister noted that the president’s draft law takes into account almost all proposals of the government, except for reducing the tax burden upon the building branch, which is regarded by government as a key branch for economic revival.

In addition, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed, the president’s draft lacks a government’s proposal to reduce by 20% the administrative expenses. “Namely because of that we reduced government’s expenses by 20% with a separate resolution as early as a week ago”, she stressed.
