KIEV, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — Ukrainian parliamentarians intend to debate all issues of the agenda on Tuesday, October 2, without the two-hour lunch-break, head of the Party of Regions faction Alexander Yefremov said on Monday.
“Tomorrow people’s deputies intend to work for 10 hours without any break,” Yefremov said.
The agenda does not envision debates on the scandal draft law on criminal responsibility for slander and insult. According to Ukrainian mass media, this draft law can be considered at the next session of the parliament, on October 16. The opposition insists the draft law be cancelled just on Tuesday, Yefremov said.
