Kyrylenko may head OU-PSD faction in parliament
The decision of the OU-PSD Bloc’s Political Council to recommend Vyacheslav Kyrylenko for the post of the faction chief will be announced by President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko at a meeting with the future lawmakers of OU-PSD today, according to Kommersant-Ukraine.
“The decision to appoint Vyacheslav Kyrylenko as the faction leader was agreed on Monday absolutely with members of the political council, and was unanimously supported”, OU-PSD political council member Yuri Karmazin disclosed. In the opinion of Kommersant, his statement indirectly confirms that OU-PSD political council members refused from their previous decision to propose Mr.Kyrylenko for the post of the Verkhovna Rada Speaker.
It is expected that at the today’s meeting with newly elected OU-PSD lawmakers, Victor Yushchenko will recommend them to support a new candidacy – that of the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Ivan Pliushch for the post of Speaker.
