"We shouldn’t look for enemies", he said

Prime Minister of Ukraine, leader of the Regions Party Viktor Yanukovych opined that today Ukrainian politicians should find ways towards mutual understanding, in the direction of building a modern democratic state, according to the government’s press-office. Viktor Yanukovych announced in the aftermath of meeting of the President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko with leaders of the political parties which passed into Parliament.

"It is just the beginning, we held some debate which assured me once again that we shouldn’t look for enemies but to search for partners, or opponents and build a modern democratic system", Viktor Yanukovych emphasized.

PM noted that just after announcement of the official results of pre-term parliamentary elections it is possible to embark on talks concerning creating a parliamentary coalition.

“Without announcing the official results of the election the beginning of talks in terms of forming coalition appears impossible. We should expect official announcement of the results, firstly. Secondly, five days are featured for court complaints. Only afterwards the process of creating the coalition can be launched, which would lead to the creation of parliamentary factions and on this basis – signing a coalition agreement,” Viktor Yanukovych urged.

Viktor Yanukovych highlighted that the Regions Party posing as the winner of the election race is ready to take responsibility for forming the coalition. “On condition we are within coalition, the Premier’s chair will belong to the Regions Party. If it fails to happen, we will be in opposition,” the PM explained.

At the same time, the Head of Govt noted that opposition must possess enough levers for maintaining control over power.
