He proposed Yushchenko to create coalition with Yanukovych and Lytvyn

Ex-President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma does not rule out the resignation of President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko after the snap parliamentary election.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, L. Kuchma said this, answering questions of journalists today.

Asked whether an early presidential election may take place after the snap parliamentary election, he said: “It can be. If again they form a coalition on the verge of fantastics, if a political force enters it only to flex its muscles, there is always an opportunity to show dissatisfaction with the received result”.

At the same time, L. Kuchma expressed a hope that the reason will win because “ the country will not bear what is happening”. He noted that he has always been an adherent of creating a wide coalition in the parliament. According to his opinion, in addition to the Party of Regions and Our Ukraine, one more political force has to join the coalition, which will not allow destroying the coalition if one of its participants begins to play politicial games. According to his opinion, this political force can be communists or socialists, or the Lytvyn’s Bloc. L. Kuchma forecasted that the Lytvyn’s Bloc will enter the new Verkhovna Rada.
