KIEV, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. After the Verkhovna Rada meeting, the deadlocked situation most likely will remain, and the government issue will not be settled, deputy from the Communist Party Alexander Golub told Itar-Tass before the beginning of the Verkhovna Rada's extraordinary meeting on Tuesday.
"I think, it is early to talk about results, but the issue of re-reforming of the government is unlikely to be settled," he noted. It is unreal without adoption of a whole number of other measures. The opposition is unlikely to agree that Arseny Yatsenyuk and Vitali Klichko may become government members without changing the power and economic parts of the government. So, the government issue is not expected to be settled this Tuesday, and the stalemated situation will remain, he supposes.
According to the deputy, the Verkhovna Rada during the meeting, an agenda for which is not finally set yet, will discuss revocation and change of the laws adopted on January 16, which are aimed at tougher measures against extremism. The parliament may also discuss amnesty for protest participants.
Meanwhile, the UDAR party's press service, in reply to the question whether the possibility for Klichko to become a new government member was discussed, cited their leader as saying that he did not see himself in Yanukovich's government. "There is no sense to discuss work in the government with me. Even raising the issue makes no sense," he added.
Justice Minister Yelena Lukash said Batkivshchyna leader Arseny Yatsenyuk also declined the offer to head the government.
