Our Ukraine, BYuT left chamber of parliament in sign of protest
Coalition violated agreements between the President, the PM, and the Speaker
The factions of Our Ukraine and BYuT left the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada as a sign of protest against actions of the coalition, and call on President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko to dissolve the parliament.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, lawmaker Oleh Liashko (BYuT) called on President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko from the rostrum of parliament to issue a decree, dissolving the Verkhovna Rada.
He noted that today the parliament, violating the Constitution and the Ukrainian legislation, adopted a number of decrees concerning the judicial system and lawmakers authorities.
O.Liashko stressed that these issues cannot be regulated with decrees, but only with laws of Ukraine. He noted that the Verkhovna Rada, instead of introducing the respective amendments into laws of Ukraine, which were agreed earlier by the President, the Prime Minister, and the Speaker, began to adopt decrees, which do not correspond to the Constitution and the legislation.
“Is this the compromise that we were talking about?” O.Liashko asked, adding that they do not agree to such compromises, and the majority of the Ukrainian citizens, represented by the opposition, also do not agree to such compromises.
