An early parliamentary election will not help overcome the political crisis in the state.

This is said in the comments MP Anatoliy Hrytsenko, chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee for issues of national security and defense, reported UNIAN.

The lawmaker believes that a snap poll will not become a solution for the political crisis. According to A.Hrytsenko, probably, the three main political forces will receive less seats in parliament, while Communists, Lytvyn's Bloc, and others, will receive more seats.

"It will mean the same layout of political forces, with not only one but several factions having a "golden share". There will be even more claims about the Speaker, the Prime Minister, and it will not solve the problem", A.Hrytsenko said.

In his opinion, the result of this scenario will be a coalition of Kolesnikov-Baloha, which will solve problems with Dniproenergo, Turboatom, Odessa Pre-Port Plant, gas shelves, Ukrtelecom, and others, but it will bring no benefits to the country.

"Speaking seriously about a broad coalition, it must be a coalition of all factions, including Lytvyn's and communists. But it should have a desire to work out a country's development strategy and to move forward", A.Hrytsenko said.

"Our main conflict is that our three highest officials cannot collaborate. That is why namely this problem must be solved. But it does not mean that political forces, which they represent, must refuse politics, let them propose somebody else. It will give a certain chance to the country", A.Hrytsneko said.
