Party of Regions ready to vote for reforms, but will never abandon social benefits

The Party of Regions is ready to vote for the anti-crisis draft bill submitted by the authorities, but only if the level of social programs is not reduced. The party leader Viktor Yanukovych declared, the party press office reported.

According to him, the party cannot allow adopting a law which provides for reduction of social programs, freezing of minimal payments and pensions for the poorest groups of population. “In case of freezing of such programs, the government must reduce prices for common good, electric power and gas for industrial enterprises and for communal services down to the level we had under our government,” Yanukovych notes.

He underlines that “only under such condition the party is ready to support the anti-crisis program submitted by the president and supported by the Cabinet.”
