The Wednesday meeting of the Supreme Rada of Ukraine lasted only eight minutes
The Wednesday meeting of the Supreme Rada (parliament) of Ukraine lasted only eight minutes. After settling some organising problems, the Rada voted for the proposal of the Yulia Timoshenko Bloc, Our Ukraine Bloc and the Socialist Party, to make a break in the work of the Supreme Rada until June 14 for holding talks on the working out of a coalition agreement. According to Nikolai Katerinchuk, who chaired the Rada meeting, the second item on the agenda was the proposal of the opposition Party of Regions and the Communist Party, which was to be put to vote. It was not read, however, because the first proposal of “The Three” was adopted with 227 votes, while the minimal number of votes, needed for the adoption, was 226. A fight took place near the presidium during the voting. MPs representing the Party of Regions tried to block the voting and to tear the microphone from the hands of the chairman. The first plenary meeting of the new Supreme Rada was held on May 25. It lasted only until a lunch-break, however. On the demand of the three political groups, a break was announced in the work of the Rada until June 7 for holding talks on the creation of a majority coalition. According to the Constitution, the Supreme Rada is given a month, starting from the day of the first meeting, for the creation of a majority coalition, and another month for the formation of a government. Otherwise the president will have the right to dissolve the parliament.
