Snap poll is the worst way to solve political crisis – Tymoshenko

The worst way to solve the political crisis in Ukraine is a snap parliamentary poll. Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this to a press conference in Kyiv on Monday.

At the same time, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed that she believes this variant is worse than the variant that implies creating a new format of coalition.

According to her, a snap poll “will bury any hope to implement the course that we declared… It will put an end to the power of the democratic coalition”, she claimed, adding that it is irresponsible to lead the country into a snap poll.

The Prime Minister believes that the best variant is to resume the activities of the democratic coalition. According to her, it is up to the President to implement this variant.

“Became it was namely he who destroyed, he took his team out of the democratic coalition, and he forbids to hold talks on its restoration today”, the Prime Minister stressed.

    If there is to be fresh elections then it is the President that must face the people.

    In 2007 Yushchenko divided the nation and brought it close to civil disobedience. Yushchenko gambled with the outcome of fresh parliamentary elections and lost leaving Ukraine to pick up the pieces.

    It is Yushchenko that should resign and seek to renew his mandate by facing the people in early Presidential elections.

    The best option forward now is for Ukraine to adopt changes to its Constitution, competing is transition to a full European style parliamentary democracy to be followed by fresh Parliamentary elections and appointment of anew head of state under the democratic system of governance.
