If Yushchenko dissolves parl before Nov 23, he will violate Constitution – PM

Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko believes that if President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko will dissolve the Verkhovna Rada before November 23, he will violate the Constitution.

According to UNIAN, Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this to a press conference in the Cabinet of Ministers today.

“The President does not have such right, in fact, he  may not dissolve the parliament until it is a year since the moment of the previous snap poll – till November 23. If he does so, he will violate the Constitution”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

The Prime Minister stressed that the year expires only on November 23, because the time should be counted since the date when lawmakers took oath after the snap poll of September 30, 2007.

“Unfortunately, corrupted lawyers give corrupted consultations. You know that representatives of the Party of Regions, as well as representatives of our faction, and representatives of profile committees, clearly stated that the year after the previous snap poll expires on November 23, and it does not matter what is the reason for a snap poll”, she stressed.

At the same time, the head of government emphasized that she is categorically opposed to dissolving the parliament under conditions of the world financial crisis and chaos in the Ukrainian political life.

“If the parliament is dissolved, it will change the pro-European majority in parliament, and will practically throw the country into chaos and vagueness. I believe it will be a crime”, she stressed.

Yulia Tymoshenko called on President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko to agree to resuming the democratic coalition, in a reinforced variant with the Lytvyn’s Bloc.
