Ukrainian Expert Believes Endeavour to Review All Achievements can Result in Deeper Political Crisis
Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr A. Gasymova / The order of the Speaker of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada (Parliament), Alexander Moroz, to summon an irregular session of the parliament will not impede early parliamentary elections, according to a Ukrainian expert, the director of ' Sofia' Social Researches Centre, Andrei Yermolayev. He believes Moroz's order cannot cause serious legal consequences.
The Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Alexander Moroz, issued an order on 28 July to summon an irregular parliamentary session. The agenda of the session to be summoned on 31 July includes the issues regarding the state of legal basis of early elections, Ukraine's laws adopted within 5-27 June. Moroz states that 179 elected representatives of the people applied to him to hold an irregular session. In other words, Moroz wants to cast doubt on availability of early parliamentary elections.
Yermolayev reported from Kiev on 30 July that not all MPs agreed with the political decision to hold early parliamentary elections, as the order of the President, Victor Yushenko, more resembles a revolutionary decree with complicated legal consequences.
An ambiguous situation occurred in this connection in the 'Our Ukraine' bloc, the bloc of Yulia Timoshenko, and other revolutionary blocs. Not all MPs agree with the elections. A rather large MP group considering the elections non-legitimate is still in the parliament. The very MPs demand to hold the session where the President will probably be criticized and the issue to give legally assessment to the third presidential order will be raised. A group of MPs applied to the Constitutional Court in order to provide for the assessment," the politician noted.
The third presidential order envisaged early parliamentary elections to the parliament. According to Yermolayev, early parliamentary elections will be held in Ukraine as soon as there is a will of leading political forces and the Our Ukraine party, the Bloc of Yulia Timoshenko, and the Party of Regions.
"An endeavour to reject or review political agreements can cause a deeper political crisis than it was in spring," Yermolayev added.
