KIEV, February 26, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Parliament Speaker and acting President Alexander Turchinov called for holding early parliamentary elections in the country.
“After the presidential election [on May 25] we should begin parliamentary elections in order to renovate all branches of government,” he said in Kiev’s central Independence Square on Wednesday, February 26.
Turchinov said he would resign after the situation in the country had normalised.
“As soon as we normalise the situation and restore power within a month, I will resign as a person who has done his job,” he said.
Turchinov believes that the interim government to be formed in Ukraine will “burn out” because of the unpopular decisions it will have to make.
“The new government will have to make unpopular decisions and I do not rule out that it will ‘burn out’ in several months,” he said, adding that the interim government would need “several months to normalise the situation in the country.
