The BYT front-runner recalled that a week ago there was only one discrepancy between Our Ukraine, BYT, and SPU: the post of the VR speaker – whether it will be a representative of SPU or Our Ukraine.  

BYT front-runner Yulia Tymoshenko does not see any obstacles for creating an “orange” coalition.

      According to an UNIAN correspondent, she disclosed this to a press conference in Kyiv today.

      The BYT front-runner recalled that a week ago there was only one discrepancy between Our Ukraine, BYT, and SPU: the post of the VR speaker – whether it will be a representative of SPU or Our Ukraine.

      According to Yulia Tymoshenko, later SPU leader Oleksander Moroz claimed that he pretends for this post for the sake of “unity” of the “orange coalition, however, later, step by step, Our Ukraine put forward new demands.

      The first of them was a demand to appoint OSA chairmen not by a submission of the coalition government, but only on the initiative of the Ukrainian President. Yulia Tymoshenko noted that this demand of Our Ukraine is contrary to the results of the parliamentary election, and was aimed at only “receiving certain authorities”.

      However, later the sides reached a compromise, in line with which governors are appointed by the President upon consultations with members of the governmental coalition.

      She noted that, nevertheless, later Our Ukraine put forward another demand: that Foreign and Defense Ministers must be appointed only by the Ukrainian President. BYT and SPU agreed to this proposal.

      Yulia Tymoshenko disclosed that yesterday Our Ukraine made another demand, in line with which the Interior Minister must be appointed only by the Ukrainian President. She is convinced that this violates the Ukrainian Constitution, “but again we reached an understanding in this sphere”.

      Upon this, according to the information of Yulia Tymoshenko, the sides agreed that the remaining technical dispcrepancies will be included into a separate protocol and accorded during 3-4 months upon creating the coalition.

      “There are no significant issues”, she said, adding that the “three” agreed to gather parliamentary factions on Tuesday morning, and to sign a protocol on creating the coalition. “I do not see any discrepancies at present, which could hamper to create the coalition”, said Yulia Tymoshenko. She recalled that BYT still has no remarks about the coalition agreement.
