KIEV, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich is not afraid of early elections, a parliament member from the Party of Regions, Anna Gherman, told reporters on Friday.
The president said he was ready to sign decrees the next day to call early parliamentary and presidential elections. "He is not afraid of elections, since we would win the elections," Gherman said.
On Wednesday, January 29, Yanukovich held two meetings with Party of Regions members of the parliament and a meeting with opposition leaders when the parliament at its extraordinary meeting was discussing an amnesty law. The adoption of the law is of great significance in attempts to settle the acute political crisis in the country. As was earlier reported, the president, during the meeting of Party of Regions deputies, said he intended to call early parliamentary elections if the opposition and the authorities were unable to come to an agreement in the next few weeks.
