BYuT to remain in opposition, if OU-PSD and Party of Regions form coalition – Tymoshenko
"It will be fairer than becoming a political roof for the mafia” - Tymoshenko
The Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko will remain in opposition if the coalition is formed between the Our Ukraine – People’s Self-Defense Bloc and the Party of Regions, according to the statement of BYuT leader Yulia Tymoshenko.
“We are fair to people, before the election, as well as after it, namely because of that we stress again that, if the Our Ukraine – People’s Self-Defense Bloc and the Party of Regions form a coalition, our political force will remain in opposition”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.
According to her, BYuT is absolutely ready to creating a new democratic parliamentary majority and a new fair and professional government on the results of the snap parliamentary poll and on the basis of the agreement, signed by BYuT and OU-PSD.
At the same time, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed that the collaboration and partnership between democratic forces on the one side and the Party of regions on the other may develop toward only one direction – providing the parliamentary opposition (the Party of Regions) with all the necessary rights and authorities to supervise the activities of the power. “Any other variants of collaboration between our political force and the Party of Regions is ruled out”, she stressed.
According to Yulia Tymoshenko, should a coalition be created between Our Ukraine and the Party of Regions, BYuT will remain in opposition, and this will be “much fairer and beneficial for the country than becoming a political roof for the mafia”.
