BYuT, OU-PSD finish preparing program of actions for democratic government – Baloha
Baloha: Democrats have ‘no right to waste time’
Viktor Baloha, head of President Victor Yushchenko’s secretariat, has said Ukraine’s democratic forces “have no right to waste time”, according to the President`s press-office.
“It is necessary to immediately correct the critical situation created by the coalition led by Viktor Yanukovych. So the democratic forces must form a coalition government in the shortest possible time,” he said on Friday, adding that an action plan for Ukraine’s new democratic government could be ready within the next few days.
Baloha said this document should contain all the priorities President Yushchenko had outlined during his meeting with Yulia Tymoshenko on Thursday, September 27.
“It is necessary to clearly show what steps the democratic coalition and its new government will take first. The president of Ukraine said at the meeting with Yulia Tymoshenko it was important to carry out very effective and fast policies to show results to the people, as the country has lost lots of opportunities over the past year and a half because Yanukovych’s government has had no program.”
Baloha also demands that Our Ukraine-People’s Self-Defense and BYuT draft a new budget to implement Victor Yushchenko’s social initiatives and keep their electoral promises. He added they also must establish a national anti-corruption bureau and pass a package of Yushchenko’s bills to fight corruption.
