KIEV, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Leaders of Ukrainian parliamentary factions Batkivshchyna (Fatherland), Svoboda (Freedom) and Udar (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform) are holding consultations with activists of protest movement over composition of a new government, Batkivshchyna faction leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk told reporters on Tuesday.
“I state publicly that this government will be legitimate not when it is voted for in parliament, but when it gains support of people, who were standing on Independence Square,” he said.
Last Monday, representatives of the protest movement began talks on composition of a government with parliamentary faction leaders, Yatsenyuk said, noting that “these consultations continue today.”
The faction leader noted that people included in a government “will quit big politics for a long time.” “We realize that it will be difficult to combine professionalism of government and representation of Maidan (protest movement),” the politician said, adding that “the only possible principle of transparency and trust to each other should be chosen.”
“A future government will face outstanding challenges, and I should say frankly that, on the one hand, members of a new government will save the country, but, on the other hand, they should realize that they commit a political suicide,” Yatsenyuk added.
