KIEV, January 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian parliament may revisit the resignation of Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov’s government after February 4, if the corresponding resolution is registered by then, parliamentary speaker Vladimir Rybak told a news briefing Monday.
According to the parliamentary procedure, the government’s resignation cannot be considered for a second time during the same session after being rejected, the speaker explained, so the proposal might be discussed in the next session starting February 4.
On December 3, 2013 the opposition’s motion demanding the incumbent government’s resignation failed to garner sufficient support - only 186 legislators voted in favour against the needed 226. The ruling Party of Regions and the Communist Party opposed the government’s resignation.
The Ukrainian opposition is now demanding the issue be considered again.
