KIEV, December 01, 22:57 /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament should take control over the situation in the country, chairman of the parliamentary committee on state system and local self-governments David Zhvania told the TVi television channel on Sunday.

“The Verkhovna Rada (parliament) should form a majority regardless of the party affiliation,” he said. “Speaker Vladimir Rybak must show wisdom and unite lawmakers. If it does not happen, the speaker should be re-elected.” Moreover, he said that the lawmakers must re-elect the government too.

“The Azarov government now is no-existent. It is an abstract thing. The cabinet of minister has exceeded its authority and hence it has lost its legitimacy,” he stressed. “I think now the Verkhovna Rada can begin negotiations on forming a coalition and a coalition government of European integration.”

Zhvania, who announced his leaving the ruling Party of Regions faction in the parliament on Saturday, suggested these issues be considered at a conciliatory meeting of faction leaders and leaders of the Verkhovna Rada on Monday.
