Tymoshenko promises to settle in the president’s office
She hopes for an early election
Yuliya Tymoshenko Bloc (BYuT) leader hopes to persuade President Viktor Yushchenko to disband the Parliament by coming spring, according to Ukrayinska Pravda.
It followed from Mrs.Tymoshenko’s article in Dzerkalo Tyzhdnya periodical.
According to her, Yushchenko has really decided to hold early elections and even has prepared a televised appeal to the nation on disbanding the Parliament during this summer political clash.
Mrs.Tymoshenko is sure the President will record another appeal on the same occasion in spring.
“I will stay at the President’s office until this record is made public and neither Bezsmertnyi nor Poroshenko nor Moroz nor Yanukovych may stop me,” promised Yuliya Tymoshenko.
In the article she confirmed for the first time that Yushchenko had offered her to chair the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC).
“Late in September, first time after the broad coalition was formed, the President asked me to come. We talked about my appointment to the NSDC, dissolution of the Parliament, promoting economic reforms, and rise in welfares. We agreed to invalidate the Political Reform through the Constitutional Court,” revealed BYuT leader.
Mrs.Tymoshenko dream of her comeback to power has not come true. She hesitated whether to chair the NSDC as infighting with the President’s team may break out again. After several meetings with the President and his Secretary Mr.Baloha, BYuT leader has agreed at last.
The negotiations on her appointment to the NSDC were continuing until “the President started intimidating Yanukovych by Tymoshenko.”
“In October 10 morning President’s Secretary Mr.Baloha called me to tell that the decree on my appointment would be issued today. He said, we should meet once again to discuss the details. The decree was really issued on October 10…on appointment of Vitaliy Hayduk to the NSDC secretary. I did not feel hurt having got used to such things. I even breathed freely …,” confessed Mrs.Tymoshenko.
Earlier BYuT leader denied the fact Yushchenko offered her to chair the NSDC.
