KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The opposition does not seek vice-premiership without taking full responsibility of the government, leader of the Batkivshchina party Arseny Yatsenyuk said behind the scenes of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) extraordinary session on Wednesday.
“Premiership has no importance if the opposition takes full responsibility,” Yatsenyuk said. “We want the president to put forth concrete proposals to allow the opposition to take full responsibility in the cabinet of ministers,” he added.
Commenting on the economic situation in Ukraine, the opposition leader said the present government had taken $35 billion loans while $11 billion should be returned this year.
A candidate for Ukraine’s premiership will be most probably chosen already next week, the first deputy head of the ruling Party of Regions, Mikhail Chechetov, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The consultations proceed actively,” he said. “Probably, next week we will have a candidate for premiership.”
In reply to the question whether a compromise to give an amnesty for protesters arrested in anti-government demonstrations would be reached, Chechetov said much depended on whether the opposition would be able to distance itself from radicals.
“We tell them, disassociate yourselves from radicals. They answer, they do not control them. At least, they recognize this fact,” he said.
