KIEV, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Vladimir Makeyenko, the chairman of the parliamentary committee for procedures at the Verkhovna Rada, the national parliament, has recommended holding a session of the Verkhovna Rada behind closed doors for a discussion of ways out of the political crisis in the country.
“I find it important to convene an emergency session in the absence of mass media, assistants or invitees,” he told reporters and added it would be logical to resolve the problem in parliament, since all the political forces are represented there.”
“The session may continue as long as it will take the MPs to tap the way out,” Makeyenko said.
He leveled sharp criticism at the opposition’s demands to hold early general elections. “A new election of the Rada is to be taken off the agenda,” he said. “When is this election to be held and under what system? And what’s next?”
The next plenary session in the Rada has been scheduled for the period of December 17 through to December 20.
December 16, the conciliatory council of the leaders of parliamentary groups and factions is expected to meet. It is due to draft an agenda for the session and to decide on whether or not the Rada will have a session behind closed doors.
