KIEV, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, proposed to hold early parliamentary election in June or October this year. A draft resolution to this effect was registered in parliament on Monday, the Rada secretariat said.
Nikolay Rudkovsky, a lawmaker not included in any parliamentary factions, registered a resolution for early election on October 26, 2014. “The resolution mainly aims at alleviating tension in the society and factors that stir up escalation of violence, as well as at ensuring human rights and freedoms,” Rudkovsky said in an explanatory note to the resolution.
Another lawmaker, who is not a member of any faction, Viktor Baloga, proposed to hold early parliamentary election on June 22, 2014. “A deep political crisis in Ukraine will result in loss of trust in state authorities by people, and temporary alienation of state authorities from people should be eliminated immediately. The most effective and quickest solution to this problem is self-dissolution of parliament and early election in the Verkhovna Rada,” the explanatory note to the resolution reads.
Parliamentary election will be held on party lists according to the country’s Constitution of 2004, which was brought back in effect.
