Lutsenko: MIA won’t allow anarchy in Ukraine

Law enforcement bodies will do everything to ensure that voting in the second round of the presidential elections on February 7, 2010 will be transparent and democratic, Acting Minister of Internal Affair Yuriy Lutsenko said.

He also assured that he won’t allow the results of the elections to be distorted. “I won’t allow anyone to throw the country into anarchy and violence.”

“I’m not talking about the minister’s chair, but about stability of the electoral process in Ukraine, the ability to maintain law and order, which the MIS has done and received a thank you from the OSCE. We will do the same during the next round,” Yuriy Lutsenko said.

As reported, the Party of Regions’ initiative to dismiss Yuriy Lutsenko passed through parliament today. Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko then called an emergency Cabinet session at which Yuriy Lutsenko was appointed First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and acting Minister.
