KIEV, November 1 (Itar-Tass) — Vladimir Litvin, the speaker of Ukraine’s Verkhovnaya Rada (parliament) of the sixth convocation, said in an interview with the Rada television channel on Thursday that candidates who had won seats in the October 28 parliamentary elections in Ukraine should get down to serious political work as soon as possible.
Criticism on the part of international monitors can be explained by the fact that many of them had been negatively prejudiced straight from start because they thought that the elections in Ukraine would be dishonest and would be unacceptable without participation of famous politicians who are now serving a prison sentence.
Litvin called on deputies of Verkhovnaya Rada of the 7th convocation to give up their election rhetoric and get down to serious political activities.
“The former election rivals should announce demobilization and understand that the elections have been valid. Now they should focus on practical work and on how to establish a dialogue and determine common approaches to further work in the country,” he emphasized.
Litvin said that every political faction and every deputy should realize that people can change their likes and dislikes very quickly: from universal enthusiasm to indifference and then to hatred. “Therefore, the newly-elected deputies should at least be responsible and desirably professional,” Litvin went on to say.
The Ukrainian Central Electoral Commission will sum up the final results before November 12.
