Viktor Yushchenko will meet Friday with the leaders of elected parliamentary parties
Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko will meet Friday with the leaders of elected parliamentary parties and the premier to discuss the formation of a parliamentary coalition, the presidential press service said Thursday. Ukraine has been in limbo since parliamentary elections on March 26 failed to give any bloc or party a clear-cut mandate to form a government, though supporters of former premier Yuliya Tymoshenko, whose eponymous bloc came second in the vote, have been pushing for a union with two other movements. "I have a planned meeting on May 5 with political leaders, including Yulia Tymoshenko, Oleksandr Moroz, Yuriy Yekhanurov, Viktor Yanukovych and [Communist leader] Petro Symonenko," the press service quoted the president as saying. Socialist leader Moroz is a key player in Tymoshenko's plans to form a coalition, which aims to keep leader of the pro-Russian Party of Regions Yanukovych out of power, and to restore her to the prime minister's chair in place of Yekhanurov. Yushchenko said he would make every effort to ensure that the formation of a new coalition "would gain a new impetus and be over in the next one or two weeks." Under the Ukrainian constitution a parliamentary coalition must be formed before a government can be formed. Tymoshenko is seeking an alliance with pro-presidential Our Ukraine and the Socialist Party, which came in third and fourth respectively, but is vehemently opposed to dealing with Yanukovych.
